Thanks. I'm not subscribed to that mailing list so keep me CC'd.

I'm glad that you like it!

Wouldn't it be simpler to just use the svn:ignore property and then add a flag
to svn-clean so that it handles those differently?

Like the git-clean -x flag?

           Donīt use the ignore rules. This allows removing all untracked
           files, including build products. This can be used (possibly in
           conjunction with git-reset(1)) to create a pristine working
           directory to test a clean build.

In that case the default behavior is to not clean ignored files. svn-clean
does the contrary, so the added flag would make svn-clean not delete ignored
