Hi João,

One thing about flymake that inconveniences me is that I cannot disable
it for some specific files.
I have a bunch of "scratch.py" files that I use as poor man's notebooks.
To disable flymake on them, I made this chanfe to flymake.el today:

and set `flymake-disallowed-file-name-regexp` to "scratch".
it seems to be working, so I was thinking about pushing it.
Do you think there is a better approach?
