Thank you. This makes sense.
I must admit I had some of these .cvsignore files in the CVS repository
(not sure if it's good practice, but it did what I wanted it to do) so
they got into the SVN repository after the cvs2svn conversion. I guess
they're at worst useless but harmless. I'll use svn:ignore from now on.
