Too long path, too deep tree

When people starts a project, they think ahead, try to design the
directory nice, and make a mistake: Too deep tree.

For example, the following path is slightly modified from my real
experience.

    project9/doc/internal/spec/pdf/section1.pdf

Either you type the path or click down to the file, this tree is
too deep. And everyone in the project had to walk around the tree
during the project.

I’ll talk about the reason for the long path in the upcoming two
sections:

– Too much preparation for exceptional case
– Overuse of directories to categorize files

I think the previous example should as short as this.
