Brackup : SImpleFind ignore filter questions

* Only applies to CRG's modified version of Brackup *

As I port my rsync, duplicity and rdiff-backup configurations to Brackup
 I am questioning the way I designed the ignore filters. Currently the
filters are applied to files and directories (with directories
optionally being compared with a trailing '/'). I am beginning to think
that changing 'ignore' to an 'ignore_path' and 'ignore_file' might lead
to easier to read and maintain configuration files, it should also be a
tad faster. If I do this I will drop the 'ignore' keyword, which is
probably a good idea anyway since SimpleFind's ignore patterns are
different (by necessity) from the Brackup core.

So in summary:

ignore -- removed as a SimpleFind configuration
ignore_path - only matched against directories (full path)
ignore_file - only matched agains files (just the file name)

Any thoughts?
