This is almost already the case: just above in the --include /
--exclude options details.


	  This  option  is  a  simplified form of the --filter option that
	  defaults to  an  include  rule  and  does  not  allow  the  full
	  rule-parsing syntax of normal filter rules.

	  See  the  FILTER  RULES section for detailed information on this

	  This option is related to the --include option, but it specifies
	  a  FILE  that  contains  include patterns (one per line).  Blank
	  lines in the file  and  lines  starting  with  ';'  or  '#'  are
	  ignored.   If  FILE  is  -,  the list will be read from standard
