Right, I was deliberating on whether to unify the dir layout so that it
fits with the Makefile targets nicely but decided to leave it out for
later. IOW, do the "one thing at a time" deal. Besides, some tools don't
have that clearly defined targets and selftests, for example, doesn't
need to be installed but simply run in a loop.

So definitely agreed, the tools/ dir could use a bunch of cultivating in
later cycles.
