I'm just about to do this for DEFAULT_SRC_{COMPILE,INSTALL}_*
(DEFAULT_SRC_PREPARE_PATCHES already has to be an array).  This means
you won't be able to use wildcards in DEFAULT_SRC_INSTALL_EXTRA_DOCS
anymore, but oh well, just do something like

src_install() {
    dodoc *.txt

It's more important to have predictable quoting behaviour.
