Adding another configurable to control it gets back to my point-

Not so much transactional as groupping/seperation of each apps files.
The type of changes you're talking about could just as easily be
integrated into package.* with source command added to it.
Where's the gain in adding a secondary location for these files, when
the same can be managed from the existing with a minor tweak?

Two stats when os.path.isdir(parent) would suffice (single stat)

Actually, in reading this through a bit closer, it won't go recursive-
the code above will only go a single dir down, which isn't
really friendly- either support recursing through subdirs or don't,
