Hi.

I don't yet have something to show, but will post it as soon as I can.

What's the reason Garrett Rooney's patch was never integrated? I'll be
taking a look a it, too, and steal what I can :)

I saw in that thread that there was a question about recursive use. If
I understood the objection, the problem is how to resolve a pattern
such as */tags. My answer to that will be to completely punt the
issue, and only allow absolute paths to have wildcards.

Another issue that must be solved is that several entries can apply to
the same path. I propose the following rules in order to disambiguate:

- Repo specific trumps pan-repo
- More path components trump less
- Less wildcards trump more

Do these seem reasonable? Any comments?
