I'm ambivalent about it. Basically, if it's there, I'd rather not hide
it behind a config file, and i'd want to be sure that it's obvious from
looking at the template we load up that you can edit the list of files
(the 'everything below this line will be ignored' thing doesn't cut it,
since we're not ignoring it anymore). that said, I haven't looked at
the latest iteration of the patch, so perhaps you've dealt with that

Honestly, I use the feature in perforce, but primarily because I can't
figure out how to tell perforce to do a 'p4 submit foo/bar.c
blah/baz.c'. You can do wildcards, but that only works if you want
everything in a directory, or you can do 'everything' and edit the
list, at least as far as I can tell. Subversion's current way of
dealing with it seems more intuitive, the perforce way seems like a bit
of a hack.
