Note that I renamed the option in the patch that comes along with the
2.6.1pre-2 release; it is now:  --perdir-exclude-from=FILE .  I wanted
the "-from" suffix so that it was associated both with the other *-from
options and the --from0 option (which does affect the line-endings when
reading these per-directory exclude files).  The "perdir" prefix is the
best I could come up with that described this exclude option as briefly
as possible (since the option name is rather long in total).  If you
have a better idea, let me know.
