PCC INCLUDE operation reports errors for ignored .COPY objects

Description

So I am loading Core Rulebook only and I need to INCLUDE a single weapon from Pathfinder Ultimate Equipment. So I add to my homebrew the following:

EQUIPMENT:@/pathfinder/paizo/roleplaying_game/ultimate_equipment/ue_equip_arms_armor.lst|(INCLUDEogslicer)
WEAPONPROF:@/pathfinder/paizo/roleplaying_game/ultimate_equipment/ue_profs_weapon.lst|(INCLUDEogslicer)

I get the following errors:

So apparently trying to include ONLY Dogslicer is not possible, though the docs suggest it is possible.

It's a bad to have to load all the equipment or even worse, the entire source, just to use a single item. In this case Dogslicer is not itself .COPYied from other item, so this is not a cascading load issue.

Yes, it's unfortunate that .COPY and .MOD always get evaluated. They also throw the same kind of error if the copied/modded object has been marked with FORWARDREF.

Error messages for .COPY items not INCLUDEd (when INCLUDEs are present), or EXCLUDEd, are now suppressed. This suppression was already present for ..MOD lines.
