What is the best way to handle files that may possibly be created

For example, when I remove my lilo, I sometimes have messages "unable to
completely remove directory" and "couldn't entirely delete package"

I read a posting about this in September suggesting doing a RMDIR with
errors going to /dev/null.

Would it be okay instead to delete the filenames that are expected to
possibly be created?

Any current examples?

I was thinking about using OWN_DIRS for this.

In this case, I have lilo which can create backup copies of boot
sectors. They probably should not be deleted. So maybe I should just get
rid of that @dirrm. Any advice?
