As Emacs Org-mode has proven for text files, this structuring into
smaller pieces can be done in one single file too (that is structured as
a hierarchical outline tree) an this can be even more convenient than to
deal with many small files. But otherwise I agree with you, its much
better to split a file up before it becomes a growing mess.
