It seems obvious to me too to leave the main css file well alone,
not to touch a single hair of its poor head, not to break it up.
I happily see and agree with it being "cumbersome to break it
into 2, 3, or 4 small css files". I was suggesting no such thing.
The matter is so simple that I might well be missing something
obvious to you all? I think I am having quite a bit of trouble
lately with human communication. I might need extra terrestials
to talk to. But, alas, I am here on earth completely alone.
