The source-registry :tree thing already provides for recursive exclusions.

I was thinking: since the :tree searcher already does a painful
recursive directory listing,
maybe it could recognize files named source-registry.conf or some
such, that explain
how things are laid out in this directory using :here.
Although, this makes the configuration language and search procedure
mutually recursive, which is dangerous.
