Just one additional note: I have just looked into a directory tree of
our book we are just writing. It has a main file, its .sty, one file
per chapter, one file per image. It now contains just preview images
and will contain two versions of production quality images, colour and
grayscale (not yet created). The whole project now contains 200+ files
and when everything is finished, t will contain approximately 600
files (with files for gnuplot etc). Thus 250 is really a small system.
