comment Configure ack on a per-directory basis
That makes sense. The --ignore-dir still takes time for ack to go through the file system and examine each directory to see if it should be excluded. Passing in only the directories you want to search eliminates that scanning.

comment Why doesn't --type-set work in ack?
What I have found in the past is that people have not the ack=ack-grep alias, but more often ack='ack -a' aiias.

This may be better handled over on the ack-users mailing list. Also, while you're at it, upgrade to ack 2.04.
