Is there a better way to dynamically list the contents of the
<cookbook>/files/default/ directory from a recipe at runtime than
inspecting that path in /var/chef/cache/cookbooks ?

My concern is that the Chef sometimes removes files from the cache
that are in the cookbook but it doesn't consider currently needed.

Chef only downloads cookbook_file and template assets if it needs to render the target file. Otherwise they are cleaned up at the end of the chef run.
