Not to me. i'm in favor of it actually.
Better maintainability.

12:00 to 24:00 CET is usually a nice period. Most developers are from 
europe. i'm there on and of, but i'll try to stay online a bit more 
until  i see you.

New files need to be added to the Modules.am file in the directory.
New directories are actually a bit more difficult. I'm not sure how for 
instance a new .nib would be committed. i think file by file and 
directory by directory. You can grep around for MainMenu.nib to see 
where it is known in the current tree.
