Using cpbackup-exclude.conf to skip the already backed up archives tar.gz?

http://forums.cpanel.net – Some folks do a manual backup, then they leave the big file, eg. backup-9.23.2012_18-55-42_user.tar.gz in their subweb, then later they do another manual backup.... I'm sure you get where I'm going here, each backup archive expands exponentially in size because it includes a backup, of the previous backup archive, of the previous backup archive, etc. etc. etc. So, exactly how do I create an entry to in /etc/cpbackup-exclude.conf that will exclude files like backup-9.23.2012_18-55-42_user.tar.gz from being backed up again and again and again? I don't think I want to do something as bro (HowTos)
