No dice. FILES_${PN}-core_remove = "${libdir}/python-2.7/encodings" does 
not register anywhere. In the "bitbake -e" output, no _remove event 
appears for FILES_python-core, and the image still contains that 
encodings directory.

I'm afraid I'm outsmarted here by the Smart Dictionary.

This ugly fallback is doing what I want though:

   do_install_append() {

     if [ -e "$encodings" ] ; then
       find "$encodings" -type f | grep -v -E 
'/(utf_8|aliases)\.(py|pyc)$' | xargs rm -f
