Thanks for your reply.
And yes, it does make more sense.

What we should do IMO is doing like what Qt does: In the same library, 
separate the source in several directories (like qtcore/kernel , 
qtcore/global , qtcore/tools)

That let us with an organized source tree,  and if ever we want to add some 
dependencies between classes for one or other reason, we still can.
