I think that tiy are wrong about Point 1. You can declare a sub or function
without the words Private/Public; that suggests that without the word
Private it will default to Public. But I've wrong before. Aside from that,
I'm pretty much aligned with your strategies. I have too many reusable subs
and functions to house in a single module, but aside from that, I'm totally
on board..
