At the risk of getting something thrown at me: after reading Julian's
arguments, I was thinking "svn:recursive-ignore" might be a better
name. It doesn't sound as global, and it does adequately describe what
it does as opposed to svn:ignore. (except if it doesn't ... not
entirely sure if "recursive" is accurate for the current behavior).
