Are you saying that you generate (or an include snippet
for it) automatically?  If not, why not, if yes, what is the problem
with maintaining consistency with a script?  Ideally, you generate
both the files and the snippet from the same script.

Do you already do the splitup in CVS?  I cannot see it there
(I just got HEAD from :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/ppl).
