Larger JS frameworks like Dojo tend to be split across several files and 
directories. The fun starts when such frameworks load/reload stuff
using relative URLs. A co-worker using Dojo intensively had to invest
some time in order to integrate such a JS monster properly. As far as I 
remember Extjs also uses multiple files (but not as much as Dojo does)..so 
please check in advance.
