While the dynamic module mapper approach works in some cases, it is
not an universal solution. It is incompatible, for instance, with the
Remote Execution protocol, which requires all inputs to the compiler
to be rendered as static files. Large scale C++ usage is increasingly
dependent on the Remote Execution protocol, therefore this is not
something that we can ignore.

Therefore, we need to answer this question within the constraints of
rendering things into input files and command line arguments.
