Is the multiple-file configuration logically equivalent to the 
single-file configuration?  If you #include'd all the tiny subfiles, 
would the resulting config be identical to the single-file config?

If so, then what are we really arguing about: they are isomorphic.  
Perhaps a tool could generate the single-file config for easier 
double-checking of the split-file config.

If not, then the user needs to know what will behave differently.
