I see.  I'd been thinking of a source tree mounted read-only, not the
actual files changed to be read-only.

Makes sense.  Toplevel dependencies should take care that the file isn't
used by another target library in the small time window between removal
and copy.

Could you try the obvious patch?  It's probably quicker than me
