Not a bad idea. However, I don't think I like having to mkdir and
rmdir all those Generated/ directories all the time. So, as a
counter-proposal, one of the following:

-X '*.[osi]' -X 'tmp.*' # ...which I prefer
-X '*.[osi]' -X '*.tmp' # ...the conventional *.??? look

I don't believe it would be a hardship to force files to begin or end
with `tmp'. It's not like our filenames have stupid length
