I'm creating a new Craft 3 site and migrating a lot of content from a wordpress setup. I'm wondering if it is better to separate assets into more sources - thus reducing the number of files per directory. An example would be a different asset source per section. Or is it fine to lump them all into one large directory? Is there any performance advantage to the former?

For most sites, there probably wouldn't be a difference, but if you're purely looking at performance and your site has a large number of assets, then 20 sources with 5,000 images and folders in each is going to scale better than a single source with 100,000 images and folders in them.
