I use and have used a single source file QSRCF for years for all the
parts of a project.

This makes all the sense in the world to me. Why keep switching between
different source files for different parts of an application when I can
see everything in one place.

I've tried it both ways and ultimately went back to multiple source files. I
recognize the merits of your approach, but in the end it was the 10
character name limit that forced me back. Once you add a suffix like _PR,
you're down to 7 characters for the "object" name. That's just too confining
for me.
Now, this is interesting. While I am a big believer in combined source files, for those pieces that do require a protoype I have a separate prototype source file. I also segregate out my database source from my program object source (display files, modules, etc.). But this very quickly becomes a philosophical debate; I don't think there's any best solution except the one that works best for you.
