I would go for the manual method: As cleanup-modules is something which
developers tend to forget, I do not think that many patches will include
them. On then simply tries to reduce those by patch review. - If patch
developers do not see it in other files, the chance is high that they do
not even know (or remember) about that feature in a few months.
And after some time (1/2 year, 1 year?), one can check whether a
spurious clean-up modules has slipped in - or whether some
cleanup-module is missing. I expect that there will be none or very,
very few cases.
