I'd go crazy if I had to do the silly 'svn propset svn:ignore' thing
everytime I wanted to stop seeing object files and all the crap emacs
leaves around when you run it. I like cvs's .cvsignore files better but
I can live with svn:ignore as long as svn ignores things that are always
junk like the list above. I mean really, when have you ever needed to
add a file matching one of the expressions above? I'd be willing to bet
if you ever did then it was a special case and you've probably only done
it (on purpose) once in your life.

I agree -- that would be a very useful feature.
