Hi Dominique,

Thanks for the prompt reply!

Well, actually Ivy is creating a list of files that currently exist since
I'm currently following your second suggestion, having tiny build files in
each module that include the common one. I'd rather get rid of that since
people are showing an annoying tendency to fiddle with them, and in build of
80+ modules it's hard to figure out what's going on when they do :-)

Looks like a job for a custom task to me.
