OK, sounds interesting.

I don't understand; if a file is present in more than one package, then
you get all sorts of problems with clobbering, missing files, etc. This
is a limitation of setup.exe that we have to deal with. A given file
should be in one and only one package, period.
Unless I misunderstood you, could you please make a new patch without
that part of the code.
P.S. Now that I think about it, it might be a good idea to have a
similar function that checks for _forgotten_ files, i.e. those that were
not included in any package. PTC.
