Fair enough, but in that case there are two directories to rename:


I still think it's cleaner to rename the top level directory to avoid
changes in apps -- if you rename the individual directories apps would
have to adapt to change from <webkitdom/foo.h> to <webkit2dom/foo.h> or
whatever the new directory name is.

If you change the top level directory instead and update the .pc file to
point to the new directory:

Cflags: -I${includedir}/webkit2gtk-3.0

... then apps could keep on using <webkitdom/foo.h> without needing to
adapt for the rename.
