I wasn't suggesting that. I just said that a) instead of first
installing stuff in e.g. /usr/share/doc and then deleting it, portage
would just not install stuff there in the first place, and b) that in
addition to (or maybe instead of) the FEATURE flag, there should be a
variable to set which directories to not install in.
I never said anything about modifying any ebuilds.
