The Subversion ignore mask has a little regex feature in it. The '[]'
chars are used to specify character groups. With those, you can ignore e.g.
*\[bB][iI][nN]
which would ignore all folders named 'bin', no matter the case they're
in (e.g. bin,BIN,BiN,bIN,...).

Care to explain a little bit further? How would such a browser look
like? What would it do?
Also, please don't take this the wrong way, but if you need such a
feature you have a real mess in your working copy. If your working
copy/project is in order, you don't need to ignore that many files or
folders. You should configure your project so that generated files are
*not* created in the working copy but in a subfolder. I know that most
IDE's just create those files wherever they like, usually in several
places and inside the source directories. But you can configure them to
put those files in *one* subfolder. (Just look at the TSVN project: we
put all generated intermediate files in the "obj" folder, and all final
binaries in the "bin" folder - we don't have an 'obj' or 'bin' folder
inside every source folder.
