I think that the tree reshuffle should be done separately from the cmake branch. I also agree with Ged that it isn't very logical, so from this point of view I support the tree restructure.
On the other hand ReactOS is in a really bad shape form a user point of view and all the resources should focus on fix the most important bugs and regressions listed in http://www.reactos.org/wiki/Buglist. The rest of the things
is of a minor importance to me. We can't do everything at the same time, we should focus and things of major importance at the moment.
Just my 2 cents.

I might be a bit of a n00b but at this stage, I also support this restructuring of the tree. I also see a potential for optimizing builds to allow for building a set of components, as opposed to having to work out what components go with what and build them all individually.
Might also help as there are loads of branches in the repository, many  that haven't been updated in years, that can be easily reduced in size and/or merged as a result of the scheme.
That's just my thoughts on it, but I'm not really had more than about 3-4+ months experience with the ReactOS codebase.

The logical layout is exactly what is wrong with the tree. The tree is currently laid out in a manner which you would expect someone who doesn't understand NT architecture. Things are laid out by type instead of by architecture.
It makes building individual areas of the operating system very difficult.

Yes, there is no sense in doing two 
mainly unrelated very big tasks simulteneously. Also my own opinion still 
hasn't changed - existing layout is quite logical (there are exceptions, but 
they are everywhere), and any modularization could be achieved already with 
existing tools like sysgen.
Let cmake branch be actual cmake experiment, not an 
awesome attempt to fix whole ReactOS at once

I also support a reshuffling of the directories, but not in the 
cmake branch.  Let that be used JUST for getting cmake up and running and 
if/once that is merged into trunk, then we look into changing the 
structure.  Best not to complicate one task by adding more to it.
