Well, splitting files doesn't simplify the code.  It just moves the
mess out of sight.  The pressure to factorize and write simple code is
IMO higher if everything is in a single file.  Also the presentation
stuff cannot be modularized as easily as the fuzzy completion code.
My problem is that the code is too complicated, not that the file is
to big.
