OK, now I get it. I think. The unversioned direct child of a versioned
folder is the first (and only) element of its own path, right? I.e.,
these unversioned com folders, children of versioned bin folders, are
just "com" for the purposes of pattern matching. Thus, ignoring "com",
no stars or slashes, should ignore it (which it does).

It looks like the bin folder is versioned in some cases so it can hold
a script that needs to be deployed. IOW, it's out of my hands.
