A fairly simple (i.e. short) file does not have to split up the "Code:"
section at all.  If the file gets longer, then the convention calls for
the "Code:" section to be split into sub-section.

I would rather splitting the "Code:" section into multiple sibling
sections, because of the reasons given in the topmost post.

I am only suggesting that using sibling sections should also allowed and
that it maybe could even become the recommended approach going forward.

Using child sections would continue to be allowed and am not suggesting
that we adjust all existing files to use the sibling style instead.  I
don't think anyone else is suggesting that either.
