Perhaps you could explain why this matters in the context of this
discussion.  As long as the file is clearly separated into sections
that deal with different groups of functionality, the size of the file
should matter only to the compiler, no?

It's actually the other way around: the larger the file, the more
functions can be static, even if they are interfaces between
conceptually separate modules in the program's architectural design,
and will have to have external linkage if a large file is subdivided
into several smaller ones.
