Ok. I'll find some kind of workaround.

I understand your position and that things won't be changing, but I
figured I'd at least explain why I asked for this so that I see like
less of an incompetent fool (which is how the replies are making me sound).

What my team needs it a way to ignore the output of Visual Studio .NET.
We don't want our output stored in source control. We only want the
files needed to build to be stored in source control. The definition of
"output" is _any_ file that appears anywhere under a directory names bin
or obj. That output directory contains *.dll *.pdb *.xml amoung other
files types. Yes, we already have *.pdb ignored globally. However we
can't just globally ignore *.dll and *.xml because there are other files
elsewhere in the repository that need to be there that have these
extensions (third pary dlls we must link against, etc).

So, I'll find some kind of workaround. Probably I'll just change the
config back and forth as needed using .reg files or something since the
need to add *.dll and *.xml files is less common than the need to ignore
them.
