Splitting by version will satisfy the first requirement, while not
necessarily contradicting the second.  (I consider a 500KB file to not
be ``too large''.  YMMV.)

Anyway, I think we need a definitive say-so at this time (Andrew?),
because something has to be done to get the CVS sources be usable for
the DJGPP port again.

I will go along with whatever verdict The Powers That Be will issue.
That includes any work that needs to be done if one of my suggestions
for a different split method is accepted: I'm prepared to do it.
