Hmmm...On the other hand, I can certainly imagine situations in which a
bunch of different classes might logically belong together, and would
therefore seem "natural" grouped together in a single file.  For
example, a set of classes might all deal with, say, astronomy
calculations.  Even more to the point, A given class might make
reference to some other class, so you'd never see the one without the
other anyway.  For cases like that it seems that it'd be mighty handy at
least to have the _option_ to group classes together in the same file. 
I know Java keeps them in separate files, but who says we can't improve
on Java?
