Hmm... I hate (but obviously not enough) to push a small issue, but adding
ignored files is a function explicitly supported by svn, and even though I
can show them in the "check for modifications" dialog, I can't select them
to be added. It's really not a big deal if you don't support this specific
bit of svn functionality through the GUI, I just want to hear you say
whether you're going to support it or not. :)
