As a guy who added something like the following in several dozens of
packages, I can tell you I'd be more than happy if $stuff would do the
job for me (unless told not to):
| # Kill *.la files, and forget no-one:
| override_dh_install:
| 	find debian/tmp -name '*.la' -delete
| 	dh_install --fail-missing

I have no useful idea to share about the practical implementation, but
