Robocopy - exclude files and directories

Robocopy.exe is great tool, but it have one really stupid thing. In command line I can add list of excluded files (param /XF file1 file2 ...filex) and directories param /XD dir1 ...dirx). Great! BUT when I have lot of files (or dirs) for exclude its really not comfortable to write lot of filenames to command line (or into batch file). And command line has limit 2048 characters. its so big problem add param for example /XDFILE:list.txt for read excluded directories from file list.txt? (and for files something similar)

        That would be a nice change, however I'd only note that Robocopy is very old, and most people would use PowerShell instead.
