Well, my script is configuring a source build, and a source build doesn't know which of those files would actually be relevant to somebody. I can see the argument that that one specific case wouldn't be, but if somebody used it as a sample to work from, that's really all it's there for. So I don't think it's entirely right for me to guess what to install.
