As a new user I don't like to criticize, but this really seems a Band-aid
solution. You should not have to be confined to tools (not just search tools,
but any tools) that can exclude certain directories. My C++ IDE has "Find In
Files..." for example, but if I want to use it (and it is convenient for most
purposes) I get a lot of matches I have to ignore. My version control software
should not be intruding on my work to this extent. Just on principle you
should be able to keep your project directories clean. I can't see why these
directories couldn't be hidden away somewhere else.
