There's a lot of great work going on here!

+1 to commit all of them.

The cf_copy_include patch (#16) is a particularly nice way to solve that
problem.  I agree with having the user be explicit about installing anything
other than a .cfh file.  I wondered for a bit about throwing an exception if
the file can't be found, but then I realized that the three files Lucy uses
this method to install are absolutely mandatory, so that's probably the right

I also felt good about #19, the patch that automatically adds autogen/source.
Smart move -- that definitely shouldn't be the user's responsibility.
