But specifying subdirectories allows them to be listed in the left 
column, allowing a broad grouping and making things to be navigated a 
little better (in my opinion). Plus, my videos directory is a samba 
share and is often used for non-video stuff so it would be nice to 
ignore those. I think I'm going to just add all the subdirectories and 
not worry about the main one.
