tellico for example. http://pbidir.com/search.php?str=tellico there we 
have three versions and actually the newest one works fine. by gimp we 
have two working versions but only the newest one can handle the 
multilanguage support. should i look more for unnecessary packages?

yes subfolders would make the directories more clearly.
