I'd recommend implementing what you're after as a script to run against
OE's deploy directory creating a new directory with just the ipks you
need in it. I would not alter OE's directories directly since that has
potential to break subsequent builds in weird ways.
I'd hope most people don't need to resort to doing this although I can
understand why some would want to.
