Karl said he could review a patch if I got it out Real Soon, so
hopefully that will excuse my lack of log message.
I will write a C unit test before actually committing this.
My main concerns with the reporter side of this patch is that I might
be missing some weird case where the excluded item is found not deep
in the delta_dirs recursion but back at the top, so I need to be doing
something in finish_report or drive too...
Patch attached. Only the reporter.c change is "new"; the other two
changes are reverting r27958 and a change to the options parser that
should have been around before r27958 anyway...
