Well a heuristic could be something like 95% of the .c files in this dir are
versioned, so maybe this should be too, whereas no .o files are, so we wouldn't
suggest adding them. However, I agree with Greg, show all of them not in

Note that the code is already there for svn st -u. Also note that someone,
can't remember exactly who, said they wanted to work on svn st, so that it
