Ok, so there is not a bug there.

Yes, I'm sorry, I meant both.

You ask for a feature/bug* that all files under "chroot_local_includes" should 
be copied with UID/GID 0/0 ?

Then anyone who needs to set UID/GID for "chroot_local_includes" files should 
explicit do/redo it in a live.helper hook instead of 
trusting "chroot_local_includes" owners?

I could be fine with that, but I let Daniel and other devs choose for that 
question, I see both advantages and complications in changeing the mode in 
which files are copied in.

* bug since someone (e.g. me for a couple of systems) could have a build 
system which exploit this beaviour.
