Copy the file and fork the class.

If it's not ready to be exposed, it'll probably change heavily. That means 
it could break the other application at any moment. The developers of 
said class do not necessarily know who is using them.

The copying can be done again if a new version of the class improves 
functionality, after compatibility has been verified.

Copy the files.
