If your editor can't show multiple views onto one file with
the same simplicity and UI as it has for multiple different
files then I would suggest getting a better editor :-)
Unless you want to restrict all your files to 100 lines or
shorter then you need to be able to see multiple parts of them
at once -- one 10,000 line file is no worse than 4 2500 line
files for this.

There are definitely improvements that could be made to
the x86 code, and where splitting of files makes conceptual
sense it's certainly worthwhile. The trick is finding the
right logical splitting points.
