I'm not against the change, but the dll itself is close to 
It does not contain any code, it just relays all calls to the native dll's.
If the client code does not call the methods, the native dll's won't load,
and won't be required.

I find it easy to understand that to use MapGuide, I have to include 
splitting the files would not make that easier to understand.

As Jackie noted, it is not always easy to guess what dll/namespace 
contains a
specific feature.

Splitting the dll's should be done for all the supported API languages,
unless there is a desire to favor .Net.

Could you provide a use case where the split dll's will be better?
