If I understand you correctly, that's what I've done:


I don't currently see how dividing "by functionality" helps with
image-dired-util.el, however.  image-dired-*.el still has to build.
I also fear that the overall structure will be worse if we go out of our
way just to get rid of one file.

OTOH, I note that Gnus, Viper, MH-E, URL, Eshell, etc. all have some
util-file, so the idea isn't completely new or foreign to Emacs.

If there are no better ideas for how to structure this, I'm personally
happy with what is currently on scratch/image-dired.  But ideas are of
course still welcome, and I especially welcome concrete ones.
