I find wrangling a lot of small files with self-documenting names a lot 
easier than fighting with a one large file made larger by the number of 
comment lines needed to explain the role of different sections.

Prior to your message, I didn't think anyone actually liked non-split 
configuration files for exim4 and apache.  I guess it's a matter of taste, 
but monolithic files are certainly harder for multiple packages 
automatically maintain.
