I've always tended to that, to the point where I would release
single-file 5000 line applications. Not really so good!
However, it is not difficult to squeeze all needed little modules into
a single archive - I've used Jay Carlson's soar to do this.
With little modules, you then get 'smart linking' - only the code you
use is included. Smart linking larger modules is harder to get right!
