You wrote "However I might very well want to manually place other files
inside ~/local which have nothing to do with stow".
Now you wrote "As far as I'm aware, all my files are nicely separated
into appropriate packages".
That confuses me. I was responding to your approach in which you describe how you
make stow unfold by creating a dummy 'antifold' package which would allow you store
files not managed by stow in your ~/local
