Simple : instead of the "includes" and "excludes" parameters, we would 
have "file-includes", "file-excludes", "dir-includes" and "dir-excludes".

As decoupling files and dirs will drastically simplify the expressions, 
I like Joerg's proposal of using Ant-like wildcards, which would make 
them even more simpler.

Thoughts ?
