Dear IOhannes,

I tend to exclude files by removing them.  This way, it is self-documenting
(but a comment on why they are removed may be very useful sometimes).  I do not
use the --force option of rm, so that it is immediately noticed when the file
to remove is not installed anymore at a later upstream update.

Have a nice day,
