Yup, I admit to some misunderstanding. It makes sense now.

So what do you people think about my actual suggestion, which was to
have an option like INSTALL_PROTECT (or maybe with a better name),
corresponding to CONFIG_PROTECT, that if specified causes the named
directories to be deleted from the package before merging it. An option
corresponding to CONFIG_PROTECT_MASK is probably a good idea, too.

A FEATURE flag would probably not be needed with this solution.
