A lot of the custom action code is very old and built on a design that put everything into one single DLL. Not because of sharing but because there was a thought that a single DLL was better than many... due to CRT overhead.
That's not really valid now (might not have been valid then) so separating the DLLs has value. Unfortunately, there is a good chance Util will still be a bit of a dumping ground.

Surely all that code was in one dll because some of it was shared across extensions. So are we converting it to a static library and only linking in what each extension needs? Or is some code going to be duplicated? All this splitting of code is getting tedious.
