speedbar doesn't actually want a list of "admin dirs used by VCS".
Instead it wants a list of "directories not to show in speedbar",
e.g. "dirs used for things like meta-data".  VCS are probably the most
common users of meta-data directories, but not the only ones.
E.g. SML/NJ's "CM" subdirectories are others I've had to live with.

Just because it's not in VC doesn't mean it can't be put in a single
spot, right?  ;-)
