This is bad? I guess that's a matter of perspective. 

We've never let project structure be dictated by something as ephemeral as
class hierarchy. Refactoring wreaks havoc when classes and directories move,
are deleted, etc. 

We break it up into logical groups with several related classes. We find it
easier to perform unit testing this way, which to us is more important.

auction of stolen goods.
