You don't want it in _that_ package where %exclude is specified.  It 
doesn't mean that you don't want to package it at all.

Maybe there should be another tag "%ignore" when you don't want something 
at all? Now we are deleting files while installing... but I don't think 
it's good solution. Not clean, for sure.

If you think of MS-DOS as mono, and Windows as stereo, then Linux is Dolby
Pro-Logic Surround Sound with Bass Boost and all the music is free.
