Add optional last-match parsing

Here's a simple patch that allows any filter/include/exclude file to be parsed
in a last-match-wins format.  The file must contain this line (on its own):


This causes all the following rules to be reversed as they are read in, making
them behave in a last-match manner.  This shouldn't cause a problem in an
include/exclude file because the above string would have been a bogus character
range that nobody should have specified.
