If org-mode runs into that kind of problem one way might be when a new 
.org file is made it has a chained from [main.org] statement in the top. 
 If the file remains small enough that's all it would get.  If the file 
is going to go beyond x lines in length, then a chained to [file.org] 
would end that first file and file.org would then open up if a user went 
beyond the chained to statement in the first file.  The file file.org 
would have a chained from [firstfile.org] somewhere in the top of the 
file and names for files ought to be selectable by the users.  This will 
only work where good garbage collection happens, and something like it 
was used on CP/M systems with t-maker back before I.B.M. made its first 
PC.

If I got a nickel for every message I've already sent supporting Microsoft
Windows and its applications I'd have enough to retire on comfortably no
matter what the stock market did.
