The skip variable is an old facility. I'd like to suggest -f (--file)
option, which can be combined with UNIX's find(1) command.
Since find(1) has rich options to select files, you can do everything.
This technique can also be applied to any other tagging systems like
ctags, cscope, and etc.

All values of skip, langmap and gtags_parser are adopted and connected
respectively. (man gtags.conf)
