This should be very easy to fix, by using temporary buffers with a
copy of the region to produce HTML for.  Right?

These are only needed if one invokes htmlfontify-copy-and-link-dir to
produce HTML for files in a directory.  Is that an important use case
for the issue at hand?  E.g., if you need to produce HTML for a region
of a buffer, these facilities seem to not be relevant, AFAIU.  Did I
miss something?

I wonder whether we could begin by just supporting the immediate use
case(s) in point, maybe that is possible without too much rewriting.

We've been through this several times in the past: it isn't going to
happen.  I think htmlfontify was added to Emacs for that rteason,
among others.
