Sure, why not? It doesn't really make a whole lot of difference either
way - the only reason to have a non-flat directory structure is to make
things easier to look at with 'ls' (the structure has no influence on
the way modules are linked).
For me, I almost never do ls as opposed to type part of the name and hit tab to list matching names (which is easier with one directory).

I guess the other reason was to avoid conflicts with the SConscript files. But since things can be checked in directly, that shouldn't be a problem any more (and if the files aren't listed on separate lines in the SConscripts, they soon will be, further making conflicts less likely :-)
