No. When we say "with given prefixes", we actually mean it.

Actually, I imagine it would be pretty trivial to teach svndumpfilter
to filter based not on prefixes, but on file patterns. Are you up for
a coding task? Basically s/prefix/pattern/ through the entirety of
svndumpfilter/main.c, and then replace 'ary_pattern_match' (which was
'ary_prefix_match' :-) with svn_cstring_match_glob_list().

(cross-posting to dev@ in case someone there wants to take on this
bite-sized task)
