[ Chris Withers ]:
|I've never seen the need myself, what measurable differences has this

I do not have quantitative results since I have done that separation
from the start. But, since there are file systems optimized for a few
large files and others for many small ones, it makes sense to trust
FS people and make use of that ;o) Nevertheless, I see your point that
without measurements it "might" no  be worth the trouble.
On the other hand, if you plan your partitons prior to any software
installation the overhead is minimal and any (unmeasured) performance
benefit if for free <0.5wink>.

[ Chris Withers ]:
|Sounds like we really need to support both...
