The most annoying problem with checkflist is that it aborts the 
process when there are extra files in the destdir.  Is there any reason 

I can understand that it should abort on *missing* files.  That catches 
things like the postinstall obsolete problem I've highlighted in 
another thread.  

But I would prefer that extra files would just quietly warn, and let 
the process complete.

This might also fix the complaint that KRE had, for his ingenious method 
where he adds a number of operational files to test the new build as a 
separate entity before installing. 

Is there already a PR on this?
