The docstrip module system has a a mechanism for evaluating booleans annd generating or not generating lines in each file based on certain flags, I'd have thought it would have been possible to extend that and end up with basic (even if larger) fd files that are still automatically driven rather than manually created. But I haven't looked at the exact tests you are doing in the minion fd files though...
