This is what I got from GNU Wget 1.18 Manual:

> ‘-X’ option is exactly the reverse of ‘-I’—this is a list of directories 
> excluded from the download. E.g. if you do not want Wget to download things

IMO, -X should work as the Manual says (directories excluded from the download 
process) but when we combine it with -I and subdirectories (like in the 
example) Wget2 should download all the files in /pub except the ones in 
/pub/worthless just with `-X/pub/worthless` given as argument, without `-I/pub`.
