Arrgh, NO!!!  You do not understand.  I *don't* want to have 100000
files all in /dev.  We have the use of subdirectories, why don't we
use them?  /var and /usr got split up, and everybody thought this was
a good thing.  Why not the same with /dev?  You don't have to go overboard,
but IMHO (may be not so humble anymore ;-)  ), more than a screenfull or
two of files in a directory ('xcept maybe /bin, /usr/bin, etc) is too much.
