Re: BUG TRACKER: [svn export] please add options --exclude ITEM

I think this is a feature that could also benefit svn checkin, as many
times I'm working on multiple disjoint functions or there is a common
config file that is needed for checkout and may require some tweaks (such
as running on simulated hardware, etc) but usually shouldn't be checked in.

I would use this feature in both spots of checkin and export if available.
