Oh, yes they can! Be added, that is. They then become versioned and
can be changed, etc. It may not be what "ignore" was originally
intended for, but it could perhaps be useful sometimes, if it were to
have well-defined semantics. (In particular, should the "ignore"
directive be ignored for versioned files? Should the combination be
disallowed?) At least, it's worth thinking about how
"ignored/not-ignored" interacts (or should not interact) with
"versioned/non-versioned".
