st: inline mata vs mo/mlib?

A SSC contributor has raised an interesting question. Say that you have an ado-file that calls one (or several) of your own mata functions. You could place those functions in-line in the ado-file, or you could compile them into .mo and put them into an .mlib.

is there any real downside to distributing a single ado-file containing the mata functions inline versus distributing the .ado and .mlib (and presumably the .mata if you want to expose the code)? The inline code will be compiled when loaded, but once per session.

Thanks
