#3 Add ability to exclude folders


Our projects have a lot of supporting folders that are not part of the project code. For instance, we have Perl and Ruby in our repo in order to not have to install them locally. It would be nice to be able to exclude certain subfolders and/or file types from the tag generation. Currently, it takes like 3-4 minutes to do a tag generation and then another 2-3 minutes to parse the tag file on the first usage.

Even just exposing the ctags command that is used and being able to hand-modify it would allow this flexibility. Although, you probably want an option to restore it to the default as well. I plan on cracking open the source to find what parameters are being passed to CTags so that I can do the tag generation manually myself for now as a workaround, but this would be a great feature to add.
