I suppose by making copies of the files first, doing the substitution,
then at the end of the build, removing those files.

The problem with this sort of thing as I've discovered, is maintaining
IDE-happiness. If VS expects to build one thing, it should be a part of
the solution/project file. If it's not, VS will throw either warnings
or errors (in the case of the beta WiX plugin, it will refuse to open
the project entirely, at the moment).

So if IDE-happiness is to be maintained, the scripts to do the
copy/substitution/clean-up would have to be usable as pre- and
post-build events.
