Oh, please don't start making copies of things just to please a dependency
analyzer - there should be "one true copy" of each file, spawning multiple
copies all over the shop is just insane.
If there are self contained headers in some/many core libraries, then we
should use a tool that is smart enough to detect that and behave sensibly.
Otherwise move these self-contained details into some sort of "core" module
that depends on nothing but config.
Just my 2c, John.
