Found a real world need for this, where an external process creates a new database name with a current date, and deletes the oldest one, but keeps the last 6 old databases, each one is massive, the deleted database backup data never is cleared out, but I really have no need to backup these databases, it would be good to be able to exclude ( 'dbname*' ) so that it covers the exclusion of dbname20120203 etc.

In the meantime, I am just going to run a find command (script) to delete stale backups, and I will put it in the CONFIG_postbackup= variable.

    Assume we can achieve this using the CONFIG_table_exclude setting? Something like:
    CONFIG_table_exclude=('dbname*.*')

    Can the dev let us know if this would work and what the result would be (DB still backs up but doesn't contain any tables? No DB backup at all?)?
