That would be perfect.

Following GNU grep and diff style for similar options (--exclude-*):
use DIR as the new branch root
start with an empty branch root and fill it with the list of
files and directory contained in FILE
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
