That would be perfect.

Following GNU grep and diff style for similar options (--exclude-*):

--only-dir DIR
    use DIR as the new branch root

--only-from FILE
    start with an empty branch root and fill it with the list of
    files and directory contained in FILE

--only FILE|DIR
    when given once and with a DIR, acts like --only-dir DIR, otherwise
    acts as it would do for a single entry in --only-from
