Ability to specify exceptions for repeating tasks (e.g. 'every day except sunday' or 'every month except july')

ashkey says:
I think it would be very useful to specify exceptions when adding a repeat parameter to a task.

An example would be something like this (for work tasks who must be done even the saturday):

"Repeat every day except sunday"

i know it can be achieved by specifying the day one by one or with "weekday and satuday" (i think, i never tried) but the concept is different and allows many other customizations:

"Repeat every month except july and august" and many more.

It's not foundamental but can be useful.

Yes please.
Every weekday except wednesday is now not possible. Every monday, tuesday, thursday, friday doesn't work either.

this is simliar to my idea of "intermittent repeating tasks"

for example, I only need to check my snowblower oil every month during the months of nov-mar

so repeat every month during nov through mar
