I see the top level is a mixture of modules, utilities, cake and
others. Is there a reason for not following the itk convention of
having a Modules directory at the top level that contains all modules?
The itk convention makes for a cleaner top-level.

Also Utilities has a mixture of 3rd party (MetaIO, DICOMParser). In
itk, the Utilities directory does not contain anything that can be
linked to itk.
