Is there a way to disable the output of a single less file?

I have a theme.chirp.less file that I use as a template for more specific themes.  The theme file is never used by itself, and contains references to variables that don't exist in itself.  The variables are defined in specific theme files which import the main theme file.  The result is that I can add a new theme to the site by simply copying/pasting a theme specific file and changing the variable definitions.  

The only problem with this approach is that chirpy tries to compile the main theme setting/template file and complains that variables are undefined, which in that file, they are undefined.

Is there a way to tell that one file to not generate it's own css file, but have it still be imported by the others?
