OK, thinking about this more: assuming all files will stay compatible,
and then factoring out an RPM for each overlapping fileset, seems like
a Giant Pain In The Ass (tm). Maybe it just seems that way since I
would have to do it. ;-)

Anyhow, the subdirectories approach Just Works since we are already
using pkg-config to get an IDL dir in libbonobo

(It might be nice to add a native --idlflags feature to pkg-config,
but that can wait for now.)

So I'm going to go for subdirectories, no one seems to have much
opinion anyhow.
