Get rid of bin/ subdirectories

Description

The subproject split added subdirectories to bin/, presumably to make it easy to track which subproject each script belongs to.

This makes it harder to use the scripts, though, since PATH needs to be updated with several entries (or PATH management tools need to understand the subdirectories).

The release tools could keep a list of what scripts each subproject has, instead. All the scripts can live in bin/ then, meaning only one PATH entry is needed. Also _preamble.py (implemented in #3526) gets easier to use for all the scripts that were previously in a subdirectory.
