Thanks for the additional clarification. I think the idea to specify
the files to be deleted in a config file is pretty the same. I admit I
gave up following the object hierarchy of the moduls git-import-orig is
actually using after the fourth or fifth level ... uscan is Perl anyway
and the implementation will be probably similar in the end.
Thanks for the hint anyway
