I'm glad it's OK for you.

For me, setting "-I .svn -I .git" etc. usually leaves not much of them.

Is it really a problem considering that each directory needs to be
opened only once in a single Emacs session (and particular subdirs can
be rescanned individually by "l" in Dired)?

If you do this then you won't know for sure that a given file exists or
doesn't exist in a particular directory tree when you use C-s, so I
think it's a bad idea.
