I considered it, but I preferred separating the different queues more
completely (I often work with multiple versioned patch queues against
crew, for instance); this also side-steps the issue of what to do if two
queues use a patch with the same name (but they are different patches).

This solution deals with extending the already very powerful queue
concept with another meta level in a very non-intrusive way, supporting
multiple series in the same directory would at least have required extra
logic for same patch name cases.

Kind regards,
