Filtering FTP Directories

I have not found any discussion of this topic, but lots of conversations sort of around it. So I'll ask here:

Is it possible to set a filter for FTP directories wherein certain regular expression directory names can be excluded? An example of how this might be useful would be all /vendor directories or /.git directories. I'd like to lower the overhead of setting up new sites, which I tend to do on remote servers because we work in parallel. Downloading these types of directories for libraries I'm using seems silly, since I'm only really working with the libraries, not their development?

Actually, I figured it out eventually. What I needed to do was set the ignored file types when setting up the project's deployment options. Would be nice to be able to save that list of ignored files and directories to be applied to other projects.
