I really don't have a strong preference for this. Linus' example makes
sense as well. It's up to you how you implement its behaviour,
Porcelains shouldn't be affected by this.
Since I'm the only one with this idea, you can forget about it (I don't
mind :-) ). If others express a preference for this, you could implement
a 'cut' label (similar to Prolog's cut operator) which clears the
pattern stack before diving into subdirectories. Anyway, I don't think
it's worse the hassle since it might never be used.
