corrected author.
(wrong author slipped in because I did copy and paste of these files from their corresponding stug counterparts and then modified it)

I created this file identically to its stug* sibling.
Just the stud type is different.
Although from a logical point of view it would make sense
to e.g. let the 12x1 part use 3 times the 4x1 part etc.,
I found this to be overkill. 12 lines in a primitives
should be okay, so I decided to build each file directly
using the stud files. The gain by applying some recursive structure
here is very minimal IMHO. Instead, the saving in file loading
time and rendering bounding boxes etc. for the studs comes
from the - in future - many parts using the stug primitives.
Each usage there will save many lines in many files, this is
why the stug primitives are good. Making them themselves
use each other, i.e., letting the 4x1 use two times 2x1 etc.
would be overkill IMHO.

Please see http://www.ldraw.org/cgi-bin/ptdetail.cgi?f=p/stug-9x9.dat
At those parts we have already done this. So we do here too IMHO.

yes and no; I have two arguments

(1)
stug 9x9 contains 81 studs.
*there*, a recursive approach makes sense.
IMHO, doing this for <= 12 studs is not worth the effort.
However, should a majority of reviewers disagree, I'm fine
with applying some recursive scheme to the 1xX resp. Xx1 stugs
as well.

(2)
At the files 8x1, 7x1,6x1,5x1 you suggested to apply this scheme:
7x1 should consist of 6x1 + 1x1
6x1 should consist of 5x1 + 1x1
5x1 should consist of 4x1 + 1x1
etc.p..
This will create a linear chain of file references, which is
very inefficient. If we should decide to apply some recursive scheme
here (which is not my opinion), then it should not be linear,
but instead logarithmic, i.e., if at all, then it should be something like
8x1 consists of 4x1 + 4x1
7x1 consists of 3x1 + 4x1
6x1 consists of 3x1 + 3x1
5x1 consists of 3x1 + 2x1
4x1 consists of 2x1 + 2x1

However, as already said, for <=12 studs, I see no necessity
or gain in doing so.
