Well, if people would show interest, at least we'd reopen the feature
request in the issue tracker.

I don't have any need for this particular option on log or diff, but I
had a request some time ago from one of my colleagues for an exclude
option on svn export and checkout.

His situation was a nightly buildserver building some 40 applications.
Each application has the same folder setup in the repository, containing
a large doc folder (for requirements, design documentation etc.). To
save disk space and minimize export time he'd like that exclude option
to export all but that doc folder.
