There is already a catch-all package: the one for which you don't
specify PKGFILES_*

Usually you split off certain functions into different packages:
documentation, development... and a main package - that main
package is meant to be the catch-all package.

IMHO for the general case the current implementation is optimal.
In most cases you just say
and be done with it. I think it is important to make the most common
case easy, while still making hard things possible, and that is what
the current implementation does. I am not opposed to enhancements
but I can't think of a real enhancement right now.

Best regards
