dose-distcheck, dose-builddebcheck: --exclude option

Detailed description
From Christoph Berg https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=812202:

it would be nice if there was an --exclude counterpart to the existing
--checkonly option that excludes the named packages from being
checked.

My use case is that in my repositories I have some packages that
require backports to be installed, and I would like to do this:

dose-(build)debcheck debian_main_binaries my_repo_binaries/sources --exclude 'a, b, c'
dose-(build)debcheck debian_main_binaries debian_backports_binaries my_repo_binaries/sources --checkonly 'a, b, c'

I'm currently working around by filtering the package lists with
grep-dctrl on the fly, but the tempfiles handling is annoying.

(--checkonly-file packagelist.txt and --exlude-file could maybe also
make sense to have, where packagelist.txt has one package name per
line.)
