: Though, I've used this before to good effect (on slow crash-box):
: There's no mention to specify exclusions, only what to include.  If
: you want only a few things excluded, would you not have to list 
: everything else in each of the same subdirs?
: No biggy, and most systems build kernel/modules very quickly anyway.
