We already have a similar discussion in Issue#3363. I think a structured 
directory tree is equally easy but more unambigous.
Having the same structure as the source tree is also some kind of basic 
documentation of dependencies.

Something like e.g. <$RIOTBASE/tests> with ~90 entities and individual 
pre/postfixing of names makes it not easy to find things or check if 
things are missing -at least for me-.

my 5 ct.
