You weren't planning on doing this all _manually_, were you? ;)  With
proper tool support (or even just a couple quick scripts), the
single/multiple file argument becomes pretty much moot.

Another thing I think should be reiterated is that leveraging sets in
this matter gets us implication and aliasing for free (as long as sets
can be included inside of other sets).  I'm not sure it would be so
easy to accomplish otherwise.
