If they are only symlinks, the mirrors should have no problems with
the changes.  If they are actual files, the mirrors will have problems!

Not here...

Please don't split them in the main binary directories.  Why not just
provide a tool to let people split them if and when they need to?

    In theory, theory and practice are the same.  In practice, they're not.
