Hi Pavel--

The question is to have one big .PRO file, or many small .PRO files.
Save files do not enter into my question [except that the .PRO files
are designed to manipulate save files].

If I put a compile_opt directive in any of the .PRO files, then it
will surely fail to compile by anybody with an older version of IDL.
