[Gnu-arch-users] tagging files as not-source

I occasionally find that it would be nice to be able to tag individual
files as "not source (and thus not to be archived), even though they
follow the source naming convention".  Often these are files which are
indistinguishable from source files by their file names; e.g. a
Makefile which is generated from a, but it is a project
which contains other Makefiles which are not so generated.  Other
examples would be generated .c and .h files from lex or yacc or other

These situations may be gotten around by the clever use of regular
expressions, but there are times when it would be easiest and quickest
to just tag a particular file as unsource and be done with it.

I'm not sure how much of a bear it would be to implement, but it does
seem that the code which cares at all about what files are source is
mostly localised in src/tla/libarch/invent.c.  I'm wondering if other
folks would consider this sort of thing desirable.
