Bind snap layouts folder with path containing "."

Hi, I have a folder in /etc/netclient/

I want to bind this in layouts into $SNAP_COMMON

but it always gives me an error when building "error: cannot pack “.”: cannot validate snap “turftank-mk1-sw”: layout “/etc/netclient/” underneath prior layout item “/etc/netclient” "

Since /etc/netclient/ is a folder i would assume, giving layout path to be /etc/netclient would be sufficient. But it is not and to write into folder i have to create a layout for that folder separately
