Yes, of course.  I was thinking more along the lines of an under-hood
switch, for storage or something.

In that case, why not leave the alternator wired directly to the battery
(through a suitable fusible link), and have the switch disconnect
everything else ?  As I think someone else mentioned, you have to break
the circuit between the alternator and ignition anyway, or the engine
will keep running even with the battery disconnected.  This will make
wiring an ammeter difficult, so switch to a voltmeter.
