But some of the subdirectories of the latter simply will not open in finder -- even after I change their permissions to make them readable and writeable by me (and I have administrator privileges).

Hmmmm... for some reason there are additional permissions on the doc, source and tpm directories (the + sign at the end) and I don't know much about dealing with those but they shouldn't be there. I suspect that is what is giving rise to the problem you are experiencing with accessing at least two of those directories.
