Issue 2728: Negated glob patterns for svn:ignore and global ignores

From: Erik Huelsmann <ehuels_at_gmail.com>

Issue 2728 adds a patch to negate global ignore patterns. I think this
is usefull, but it uses the (quite normal) '!' negation character.

In our API we currently don't define any special characters other than
the normal globbing characters. So, committing this patch would break
our API. Now, I know we weren't supposed to do that. However, since
there's *no* provision whatsoever for escaping characters either,
there would be no other way than to post-pone to 2.0. That would be -
IMO - overkill for a change this small.

So, comments?

bye,

Erik.
