I wonder what you and Jacub mean with this.  Did any of you read the
example script I attached to my mail[1].  It implements what you are
writing above.  Some testing would be nice.

I somehow afraid that my cut-n-pasto in item 1. where I said

   'rm -rf ${MAIN_SOURCE_DIR}/<expression>'  (=old, outdated, wrong)

might have lead to the confusion.  Please forget this and read

   'find ... -delete'                        (=what I intended to write)

(as it is realised inside the code ...)

Kind regards
