The attached is what I came up with.

It simply splits the paths into those scanned for rpms, those scanned
for files and (optional) paths that are extra trusted prefixes for
source files. The paths that are scanned for files are trusted source
prefixes by default. There is a new option to also remove those using
-N, --no-files-sources). And you can switch back to allowing all files
on the file system with -A, --all-sources.

I think this provides a way to do what we both want, it just makes
things a little bit more explicit.

As a bonus it separates scanning trees for files and rpms, so no
unnecessary work is done.
