From a more general point of view, when having to decide whether one should "spin off" a subroutine in a module, I always ask myself "What are the chances that this subroutine or subroutines need(s) to be called from another script?"

If the subroutine is only useful in this script, I leave it in. With the modern IDE's you can usually "fold" these subs out of sight, so they don't get in the way.
