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.
