* does `/pub` match `/top/pub` ?

I think not

 - does `/pub` match `/pubx` ?

IMO it doesn't. `/pub*` or `/pub?` should match `/pubx` (if we decide to allow 

 - what does `pub` match ?

IMO `pub` should match every path that contains pub. So `-X pub` should exclude 
`/pub` and `/top/pub`

 - should we allow wildcards / regexes ?

I think wildcards would be quite useful e.g. `-X/*/pub`: This will download 
every directory and subdirectory except the `pub`(s) subdirectories. Also, 
wildcards may be a headache for us. I don't know what is a regex.

 - how exactly do we want to combine/process several occurrences of -I and -X ?

I think that this is is the biggest problem now. In some cases they will be 
compatible and in the ones that they aren't maybe we should check that in 
options.c and disable -I/-X/the two option(s)

 - will we download HTML from `pub/worthless` for scanning (but not saving) or 

What would be this useful for?
