My specific use case is doing a text search in some file manager [1] on
MS Windows. There I can specify mask and exclude mask for file name,
but cannot specify masks for the file path.

Several workarounds are possible here, but I think there might be other
use cases, like configuring antivirus software, or less experienced users.

Sorry, I do not have dev environment for C/C++ now.
I am grateful to the TortoiseSVN project for providing the binaries.
