The question is not if the file is too big to fit onto your hard drive,
the question is if the file is too big to easily comprehend.  Everything
that I've seen about software engineering has indicated that large files
and long functions are a detriment to software quality.  Even without a
major rewrite, these large source code files would probably benefit from
being broken up into multiple files.
