Nope.  You need --delete as well.  After all, we occasionally remove whole 
SlackBuild scripts.  Additionally, patches that were necessary in an old 
version might not exist in a new one for example.

You *could* have sbopkg add a file into the source that would prevent it 
from clobbering anything in that source directory, but that becomes a major 
hassel because you'd have to run a while loop to construct all your 
--exclude lines.

One possibility is to create a SBo/local/ branch and --exclude local/. 
sbopkg could copy the entire source directory and structure there if a user 
decided to make any changes.

It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise,
Than for a man to hear the song of fools.
Ecclesiastes 7:5
