There's a problem with including this in the mainstream version:  if we
don't turn //some/path into /some/path, it won't match a daemon-config
exclusion of "/some/path".  So, this would need to be conditionally
compiled into the code so that it only affects systems that treat a
leading "//" as a different path from a leading "/".
