File exclude filters

It would be really nice to have file exclusion filters (regex) to exclude files from upload and/or download.

There should be two filters, one for upload and one for download that would exclude a file, if selected, from being processed in the queue.

It would be particularly nice if you could also use this to exclude whole directories (and their sub-directories?!?), as well -- if you wanted to get fancy, you could allow sub-directory exclusion as an option for each regex)

And the comma separated lists (or whatever -- list box?) of regex's should be allowed for each site, as well as a global that works on all sites. (and a default that can be specified to be automatically inserted when a new site is created, or a button to do that next to the text box in the options)

Examples of use:

I would use this to never upload a thumbnails gallery for my PSP graphics software (the file is always called pspbrwse.jbf) so I don't have to remember to unselect it when I mass upload image directories. (or delete it after the fact, and it tends to be a very large file, as well, which takes a lot of upload time for nothing)

Also, to never upload the Windows "Thumbs.db" file that is created in any directory that you happen to view in the file viewer as Thumbnails.

There are other examples I can think of, as well.
