I read the leading asterisk as being general enough that you _could_ have a
file just named "mp3", as odd as that may be.
+\.(mp3|MP3)$ is probably more realistic.
I think the \$ should just be $ (you generally don't want to escape the
special end-of-line $).
Windows is case insensitive, so just +\.mp3$ would do what I think most
folks would want ("exclude all my *.mp3 files") on Windows.
Which documentation? I'll fix it.
