Etags & Ebrowse: Recurse support

 IMO, we need a recurse functionality in both ebrowse and etags
utilities. Looking forward to the views/feedbacks from the developers.

Rational behind the requirement:
1. I cannot use 'find . -type f | xargs etags .....
    Because the command line argument has a size limit.
2. If I write a shell script to read files one by one and feed it to
etags (in append) mode, etags.exe will get invoked as many times as
the number of files.
3. Atleast ebrowse has an option to read a list of files from a file.
The issue is I need to keep this file updated (to avoid missing files
and remove entries of removed files).

with best regards,
