Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is how Linux, *BSD, Solaris, etc. all behave
now.  If you don't want your /dos to end up in your locate database, you tell
locate to ignore /dos.  Do we really want Hurd to behave that much differently
in this respect?  Shouldn't it default to the same thing with respect to
locate as everything else?
