Not in my experience. I have a file which defines ~40 functions, with
the bodies
included when the function is called. Eg:

function blah(){

        return include('includes/func.blah.inc');

Having all the function bodies in the same file would cause php to have
to parse all
of that code, probably about 3-4000 lines causing awful slowdowns. And
the reason to define all of
the functions in one file, is so that we can include that file, and all
the functions are then available.
