[OS X TeX] organizing bibtex directory

I was wondering what the best way to configure the bibtex directory  
was. I guess it is also a matter of personal taste, however I would  
appreciate some hints what might be advantages or disadvantages of  
specific configurations (especially regarding updating these files  
later). Does it make more sense to keep all files of a given package  
together in a directory (e.g. ~texmf/bibtex/natbib) or should I  
separate the files according to their suffix (e.g. all .bst files  
together in one directory)? Am I correct in assuming that the only  
files I have to keep after running latex on the .dtx and/or .ins file  
are the .cfg, .bst, .sty (and whatever kind of readme or  
documentation comes with it)?
Help much appreciated,
