I'm afraid that makes it TOO small a project!  :-)

Besides, it won't scale up to all the other files I'd like
to collapse into "somewhere".  Initially I did consider
collapsing files into the Makefile, but decided that would
get too messy.  So while I did like the idea of collapsing
everything for any single port into a single file, I moved
away from that idea.
