How does it handle module .inc files? (Example: views_query.inc)

How does it handle multiple modules in the same directory? (Example: 
views_ui.module) -- these are two of the reasons I've preferred to avoid CVS at 
all for this kind of thing, and why I think doing this will end up getting your 
users into some trouble.

I've been trying to set aside some time to help Derek out by writing an xmlrpc 
interface to get project info, as discussed in the thread Derek has mentioned a 
couple of times, but I haven't been able to fit it into my schedule. I think 
such a project is very simple. And once you can query it...yes, it's going to 
be difficult with 4.7 because you won't have the project info, but in 5 you'll 
have it.

The 4.7 --> 5 problem might be well served by creating a module that guesses at 
the information and does some queries, and lets the users fill in information 
it guesses at incorrectly.
