Is it possible to make SPM handle it as a folder, rather than a .bar bundle (which it expects me to list as a resource, or to exclude)?

For background, both macOS and Linux support dots in folder names, in the general case (except for extensions that are registered as bundles on macOS).

That sounds like a bug to me.

(macOS bundles are directories to anything below the GUI; Finder just recognizes the extension and displays them in a special way.)
