Why? I can have 2000 transports and routers, a few hundred ACLs, 3-400
rewrites... in an exim config

In one big config it becomes very unwieldy very quickly.

Each router has it's own files and is ordered using the number in front.

Keeps it manageable when you can name them meaningful labels... and be
able to keep them straight.

This is a much better way. I have even transfered this way of doing it
to Slackware systems and to RedHat systems...

It is logical and functional.
