The 5 books I just checked in are composed of 640 source files (the
sixth book adds 113 files). 

I agree this isn't the most optimal approach, but the individual who
generated the files has been on vacation. The fastest way to get out of
the starting gate with docs when the code gets posted is to put on the
web site what is available now -- and discuss a more optimal
organization later.
