Excluding files by pattern

When I am backing up, I would like to exclude files and folders that match certain patterns:

.DS_Store
*~
*.bak
*.tmp
build (a folder name)
etc.
The script command Item Specification seems to require an absolute path from the root, though. Is there a way to specify a file pattern that will be matched wherever it occurs?

If not, could that feature be added? It would be very useful.
