The number of files is irrelevant, what matters is how often the functions
they define are used, and how big those functions are.

Byte compiling generally can't hurt, it can only help, so there's little
reason *not* to compile them.  The only excuse I can think of would be that
you might forget to recompile after making a change, so users would
continue to load the old version.
