I'd suggest finding out how many files you can comfortably handle in a
single directory for the given filesystem before performance starts to
degrade (e.g. per the filesystems' docs). Estimate how many files you
would possibly want to store, at a maximum, and then you can calculate
how many levels of directories you'll need.

Unless .htaccess files will also live there I doubt this has a lot to
do with httpd.
