      Description

      **Reported in Launchpad by Raphaƫl Droz last update 10-01-2017 23:40:19

      Currently the --table option accept a regexp.
      Although its format isn't documented anywhere it currently does not accept pattern negation.
      It means it only allow specifying a white-list of table rather than blacklisting tables based on a pattern.
      But the later is very useful in the real-life. Ex: excluding table matching '^(cache|log)'.
      Could you consider improving the regexp engine so that perlre could be used, or alternatively accept another --exclude parameter.

      Side note: in many use case, having the possibility to dump table structure (no-data) for a regexp-defined subset of table is also very useful.

      Best regards and thank for the great work!
