Re: pdel svn:ignore being ignored

Yes, but putting this in the repository is much harder than using
client-side config files. So I think we should stick with the
client-side config for now. Having the repository store metadata for
client use is a larger issue, involving not just ignore patterns but
also (for example) log message templates.

Not saying we don't want to do it, but let's grab the low-hanging
fruit first :-).
