And why couldn't those lines check the INSTALL_PROTECT (if that's what
we'll call it) variable? Including the non-installed files in binary
packages would work doesn't really have anything to do with whether this
is implemented as a FEATURE flag or a separate variable.

The disadvantage of having FEATURE:s for it, is that it will be limited
to certain directories. Using a configuration variable, people can apply
it to whatever they want.
