Do VCS Checkout Rules support wildcards?

In Version Control Settings, I can Edit checkout rules for a VCS root.

For exclusion rules (-:PathName), I would really like to use wildcards. Are these supported? If so, which ones?

For instance, instead of

-:Dev-myinitials-BranchA
-:Dev-otherdevelopersinitials-BranchB
-:Dev-anotherdevinitials-BranchC

I'd like to write

-:Dev-*

Will that work? If not, are there any plans to add it?

Thank you!

This is not correct. I tried it, ran the build, and got:

Failed to start build #1209 on AgentServer
Checkout rules shouldn't contain wildcards


So I've answered my own question - it's not supported. :(

Oh, I misread this. Thought it was branch spec. Yes, in checkout rules you can't use wildcards. However, you can vote for this issue: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/TW-3460.
