I wouldn't. One file will make it easier.

Does the sequence of packages in [a|the] queue file matter?

Yes! This is the order sbopkg will build them in, so they need to be in the
right build order. sqg generates queue files based on the needed build
order for the SlackBuilds.

The dependency chains, particularly with libraries, can be several levels.

sbopkg does not resolve any dependencies. It relies on the build order
listed in the queue files, which sqg should generate correctly.

I've always found it worthwhile, but it can be a lot of work to dig through
all of that.
