Hi. I have a couple of symlinks in my music collection which make folders show up several times. Is it possible specify a folder ignore pattern for the scanner?

Not currently. Best bet would be to remove the symlinks, or if you don't want to do that for some reason, maybe change the permissions so the SC user can't follow them?

Why not package it as a plugin?

There's a hidden setting "ignoreDirRE" which can be used to filter out some folders. It should be a regular expression. A plugin would be _very_ easy to expose that variable to the web UI.
