It's rather straight forward, actually. With recent versions of `rsync`
excludes work mostly the way you'd expect. Just ensure you exclude the files
in the magic directories that'll cause problems, like /proc.
The configuration below works for me for a full system. exclude: is a
multivalue keyword, so any entries _must_ be indented in some fashion and
follow on the succeeding line(s), or Dirvish silently ignores them.
