You cannot ignore a versioned item. By definition if it is versioned
it is not ignored.

Delete and add to ignore does exactly that. It marks the file for
deletion from the repository but keeps the local version. And it marks
the parent directory to ignore that file in future.

I think the name is causing the confusion here. Perhaps "Unversion and
add to ignore list" would be clearer.
