5000 won't be even moticeable. I have directories with 50000 files in them
and the lookup slowdown is barely noticeable. Of course that depends on your
application. If you do many lookups and start thrashing the name cache, you're
in trouble, but most applications will have good cache behavior (which is
the whole point of caches).
