	Agreed :-) I think a chunk of this folk wisdom may be a horrible
anachronism from the time when StarDivision's build system would build
over the network, such that every stat of a file in a directory was a
network latency away, instead of some (hopefully fastish) local
file-system lookup.

	So - I suggest we do what is pretty and pleasant, and then profile it
and re-think if it turns out to be extremely slow :-)
