In theory, a sound idea. In practice I often use files depending upon
certain user preferences / locale. eg. english.dic, vic-pcodes.dat. No
point obtaining 100 files if user choices will only lead to several being
used (some of my data files get quite large). Reminds me of the old static
vs dynamic linking debate (only get the resource when we need it . . . but
what happens when it isn't there, etc).
Having said all that, I think most of these issues are data related, for
code (ie. .r files) I think it is a workable scheme.
