Since I was the biggest advocate for keeping it a single file, I will
repeat my reasons for Justin. The point I had made was that HACKING
contains a lot of content that we all know exists in the document
"somewhere". If we break the document up into chunks, we are just
going to make it harder to find what we are looking for (Justin's use
case being a great example). With it in a single file, Ctrl-F in the
browser makes it really simple to find stuff fast. If we break it up
then we are just going to be having fights about what the right
groupings should be, and when you want to find one specific thing it
will be frustrating.
But as I said before, I have zero objection to splitting it up. I
just do not think it will make it easier to work with.
