May I then suggest that we create a "3.3" and "mainline"
subfolder within "gcc/snapshots" and then have folders
like "2003-06-23", "2003-06-30", etc. within "3.3" and
"2003-07-02", "2003-07-09", etc. within "mainline".

IMHO this will help organise things better (simpler and
more consistent) than the current scheme.

My 2p.
