I thought about that, but I use svn:ignore and svn-clean:ignore
somewhat differently. I use svn:ignore for temporary build files,
'tags', and things like that. (Well, most such files are in client
global ignores, but not all.) I don't want to see them in 'svn status'
but I do want svn-clean to remove them. I use svn-clean:ignore for
unversioned files that cannot easily be regenerated.

Perhaps others would rather just use svn:ignore for both purposes,
though.
