Details

When I'm running a test and edit some support file in my working copy, like the test file itself or EventUtils.js, I can refresh the page in my browser and the changes take effect, because the copy in the object directory is a symlink to the one in my working copy (at least on Linux).  With specialpowersAPI.js, this doesn't work, because it's copied instead of symlinked.
