You're right, thanks.
What would be a good way to test this? I don't think there's a way to do
it with the existing pmtest/pmpkg methods. I figured adding a "deleted"
flag to getfileinfo would be one way, however filesystem entries are
processed before package entries, and though I did get things to work
with `sp.files = ["etc/foo", "etc/config", "etc/config-"]` (i.e. create
the file and then delete it during the simulated package installation),
that's probably too clever.
Should there be a pmtest.filesystem_delete to complement pmtest.filesystem?
