I have submitted a patch for review here: http://bugs.python.org/issue2663
glob-style patterns or a callable (for complex cases) can be provided to filter out files or directories.
I'm not a big fan of the sequence-or-callable argument. Why not just make it a callable argument, and supply a utility function so that you can write something like::
exclude_func = shutil.excluding_patterns('*.tmp', 'test_dir2') shutil.copytree(src_dir, dst_dir, exclude=exclude_func)
Agreed. Type testing is fraught with problems.
