Why do you modify them directly and don't override templates in the file that 
includes them? Direct modifications is a very bad idea IMO. If you want to know 
what they look like you can either extract them from the JAR or have a look at 
SVN. Ok, not as convinient as having them copied into your custom project but 
I'm willing to pay this price.

That's not a disadvantage as they shouldn't be modified.
