Ooops!

Although I agreed with you earlier that a positive-sense parameter was
better, in this case I think consistency should come first. Let's
stick with 'no_ignore' after all. Sorry for the confusion Ramaswamy!

Internally, we should do whatever sense reversals make the code come
out clearest, of course.

Note that 'raise svntest.Failure' can take a string argument
describing the nature of the failure. See other tests for examples of
this.
