Today I was using the .5 release to process a test SIP that contained
multiple nested folders (ie: a folder that contained four folders, and in
those four folders were the files). Though Xena had no problem finding
those files and normalizing them, due to the way Xena handles the storage
of its creations, all the normalized files got put in the root folder,
rather than in their individual folders next to the original files.

Since I know that adding an automatic execution of Xena is a goal of
the .6 release, I wanted to flag this potential issue to your attention.
It may be that you'll need to have Xena run multiple times, once for each
sub-folder, because as we scale up having the archivist come along
afterward and manually put all the files into their proper folders after
Xena has been run will not be possible.

Fixed this issue in r113. Xena now places normalized in copies in the same
directory as the original.
