I had a cursory look through the mail archives for other uses people have
expressed interest in regexps for, and came up with the following:

* auto-props

* svn diff -F (and possibly -p?)

* config files (e.g. http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-12/0989.shtml)

If implementing any/all of the above would make it acceptable to add the
PCRE dependency, I'm willing to do it to get the svn:ignore part in.
