You _ought_ to be able to just say:

 $ git-ls-files --others --exclude-from=<exclude pattern file>

and be done with it.  Also please see the thread about Cogito
and StGIT's use of .gitignore and .git/exclude files.

The current implementation of "git-ls-files" exclude mechanism
may have rooms for improvements; the last time I checked, it
only did the matching of patterns against filename without
leading directories).  The world will be a better place if
somebody extends it, instead of working around its limitation.

I may be tempted to doing it myself, but I'm in the middle of
something else, so ...

It does not matter since the above is just an example and I
think you should be able to just use "ls-files --others", but
just FYI, you could have written "comm -23 .tree1 .tree2" above
instead of "diff -u".
