When including a header that's part of the same source directory, it makes
sense to use "foo-bar.h", but <libfoo/foo-bar.h> remains legal. For
including your own corresponding header, "foo-bar.h" seems much clearer.

When including a header from another directory (say including libnautilus
headers in libnautilus-private source), the <libfoo/foo-bar.h> form is
recommended so that we don't need to use -I in every directory for every
other directory it uses headers from.

In headers themselves, of course, <libfoo/foo-bar.h> is required.

Sound OK?
