You are absolutely right I didn't mean it that
way (if you refer to me?): it was meant as an
example, an example taken from reality, yes,
i.e. not made up, but still just an example.

The question/challenge was/is how to avoid not
just sitting on your own huge personal Elisp
system, and be all content about that, but how
to make parts of it accessible to other people
without having them `require' tons of general
stuff you yourself have collected in different
files, some of them huge, for
practical reasons.

OK, now that this is made clear I'll remove the
*plonk*, I just got frustrated, no big deal as
you say.
