One copy action per file really doesn't seem very scalable... I know, it would

Are you actually using this approach? It seems to me like uou will end up with 
a new branch for each class combination/permutation
and figuring out what is where and whether all the files are where the belong 
will be a pain... Or am I wrong?

I'm using it, but we're very keen on packaging around here, so most of our files end up in an RPM, and get rolled out via a different method (see http://arpmats.sourceforge.net/ ). But yes, you end up with a new branch for every combination of classes that you want to copy files for. I use find a lot :).
