I'll fill you in with some historical details:

When I started to make my biggest changes to hypermail 2, there was only the proto.h file. Every single time I modified a prototype, I changed that file and when I typed 'make' every single source file had to be rebuilt.

I find that kind of hassle very annoying so I started convert things towards specific header files for specific source files.

The transition is not complete, and it may not ever become so, but that's the story behind what you see today.

That is what I prefer.
