Heh. The biggest reason this functionality (which is indeed quite 
necessary) wasn't in rpm 4.9.0 was lack of a good name :)

I could easily live with "magic_and_path", but I think we'd want similar 
switch for excludes too, and there it'll get a bit clumsy with 
"exclude_magic_and_path" or such. One possibility would be adding a 
separate exclude_flags and then "magic_and_path" would fit there as well.
