the other, as long as there is some discernible relationship between the
bmi and the .d.json file. But in a typical unixy environment, libraries and
other artifacts to be consumed are not separated out. Perhaps, though the
bmi and .d.json both live together in an isolated filesystem-like thing
based on the module name? E.g. a directory or zip file, or some such. On
the other hand, since .d.json is intended to be portable, I would expect to
find it in something like /usr/share/module_${name} in an FHS style system?
Or if a library provides multiple modules, underneath
Replace /usr with /usr/local/, ~, ${etcetera}, etc above.

(sorry I sent this only to Olga, now replying on list, Olga if you reply,
either here or add the list back?)
