This adds some common sidecar file types (.xmp, .pp3, and .pto) to the
exclusion list for file searching.

I had been wondering why file searching had slowed down a lot for me
lately, with a lot of disk activity.  strace made it clear.  I store
sidecar files alongside the original image files, and over time,
something over 20,000 sidecar files had accumulated.
