XSIBackup VM exclusions from --backup-type=running or all

I would like to do backup all runing vm' s with vm and disk exclusions.

Now Im doing backup

--backup-vms="VM1!VM1_1.vmdk" --backup-type=running

but I have one machine with hardware pci passthrou, and is not possible to backup it in warm state becuase snapshoot is not posiible to do.

Please add possibility to exclude vm from all runing vm's

I have runing vm's:
VM0 - with pci passthrou
VM1 - runing, but one disk is a not important data
VM2 - runing
I would like to do something like that in backup command options:

--backup-vms="!VM0,VM1!VM1_1.vmdk" --backup-type=running

Expected effect:

VM0 is excluded from backup job
VM1 is backuped without VM1_1.vmdk
VM2 is backuped

We will be adding regular expressions some way in the near future, but not to the free version
