Yes, probably it should be.  We discussed this at one of our weekly meetings

Are there any objections to making --use-subdirs the default?

(We could provide an environment variable, called say
MERCURY_DEFAULT_OPTIONS, which could be used to override this
for people who prefer to stick with --no-use-subdirs as the default.)
