Well, extracting a subset of *headers* sounds reasonable, but the
sources and building infrastructure cannot be split. In fact, I'd say
when it comes to buildable libraries, you have to copy the whole library
since some headers may be referenced by the library sources.

Maybe copy everything except tests, examples and docs?
