Allowing the use of .IND files in conjunction with Domino backup task.

I would like to be able to use a .IND file in conjunction with the -e switch. for certain backups I would like to exclude certain files and folders and not for others depending on the backup job.

These excludes are over and above the excludes specified in the backup configuration document.

When playing with multiple -e exclude statements within a program document I found that the command line got truncated, as if the length of the command had reached an internal limit. The ability to specify for example "-e exclusionlist1.ind" would reduce command length and also provide the benefits that come with using .ind files.

Referring to and the use of the -e switch for Domino backup.

We can use .ind files with other Domino commands it would be good for indirect files to be made possible with Domino backup too.
