Stefan, would it be a good idea to use a folder's svn:ignore property to
tell the cache to ignore the given subfolders?

The logic would be something like this:
1) Exclude all paths given in the "Exclude folders" option
2) Include all paths given in the "Include folders" option
3) Exclude all folders from this list that match a svn:ignore property

So for instance I have:
Exclude: C:\* D:\*
Include: C:\Library D:\Projects

In D:\Projects\MyProject I set svn:ignore to "exe obj" which should prevent
the cache from scanning these folders.

I have added the subfolder D:\Projects\MyProject\exe\locale\... to version
control, because my translations live there.

So I would expect the cache to scan everything below

But not:

There's a little contradiction with D:\Projects\MyProject\exe\, because on
one hand it's under version control, on the other hand it's ignored. I would
think that the ignore takes precedence over the inclusion.

Feasible? Logical?
