The main proclaimed advantage of multiple triggers is an ability to
temporary disable some actions leaving others working. For example,
you can stop logging during bulk import but keep autoincrement
Altering one big trigger (when you need to add or drop
functionality) is an expensive operations and prefers to be performed
when no-one is connected. Adding or dropping a whole trigger is
easier, IMHO.
