This won’t work in case of the protoc - the generated tree does not always match the tree in the source and it depends on the order of the -I flags passed to protoc.

> that's actually an interesting one. the general idea is to get rid of accessible output dirs to make the build dirs as opaque as possible.  however, this obviously defies installSourceBase usage with generated files (the original use case was to install trees of data files that are not generated). i think the way out would be finding the *sources* of the installed artifacts (if necessary, recursively), as their layout is actually controllable by the user, and consequently expect the base to point into the source tree. this shall fail if an artifact has multiple primary sources coming from different directories.
