Oh sorry, most probably I did not explain very well. The situation that
I'd like to avoid is: a library installs /usr/include/utils.h (evil!),
or /usr/include/$foo/utils.h, and we make use of it (directly or
indirectly) by including /usr/include/$foo.

Possibly it is a so-corner-case that could be ignored for now, though.
