I agree that removing in your case is wrong.  It does make
sense to include in the distribution.

However I'm reluctant to check in this patch because of its ad hoc
nature.  It might be that this is the only case where this
functionality makes sense.  But I'd rather not commit it until I'm

Another approach to what you want is to do more work in dist-hook:

        ... copy into position

This might interact poorly with `make distcheck', but you could add
cleanup code to account for that.

Ugly, I agree.

I submitted a PR for the full functionality.
