Not for splitting, but for actual file system hierarchy it would. How
else would you traverse hierarchy? (list sub-directiories, files)

As to splitting files, yes, can be done, but I personally think that
would be asking for trouble because of lack atomicity for operations.
Exception being if only operations ever would be append.
