On Unix systems these are all symlinks and so essentially free. I hear
Windows doesn't cope well with that though so it looks like we just
copy the files there.

That's probably best discussed on the cfe-dev mailing list. Doing it
optimally would involve substantial refactoring (essentially splitting
lib/Driver out into its own tool). I think you'd be lucky to get
anyone to sign up to work on that, but you might be able to convince
them patches are welcome.
