I've read the entire thread and still do not understand why you are suggesting 
the new standard package hirearchy should be named "new". The contents will 
eventually will grow old and they will still be in something called "new". 
Why not use a name like "std", "misc", "core", or "sph" for the top of the 
standard package hiearchy? It doesn't matter what the name will be, but I 
hope it will be something that isn't confusing.
