There are three reasons for letting the EDITfiles and the PRINTfiles  
reside in two folders separate from the ENTIRE BOOK folder in which  
the root file sits:

1) You don't really want to see the PRINT files and indeed, when you  
typeset an EDIT file, the corresponding PRINT file automagically goes  
to the dock and when you close the EDIT file, it automagically leaves  
the dock so that you barely get a glimpse of them.
2) All the .idx, etc files which you probably don't want to see  
either are in the PRINT folder. The only files along with the EDIT  
filles are the .aux files,
3)  In order to make things easier, you can use Verna's fink package  
so that all PRINT files are then just copies of the template


with the exact same file names as the EDIT files (which is THE reason  
they have to be in a separate folder.)

Hope this helps
