svn:ignore and already added files

I found a small quirk with svn:ignore... This feature works fine now I realize what I did.

If you explicitly (even if accidentally:-) add something to the repository that matches the ignore pattern (say a directory), then subversion still looks into that directory e.g. when you run "svn status" because that directory is in the repository.

It might be nice for svn to warn you that a file/directory already added to the repository matches your ignore pattern - it took me quite a while to realize why svn wasn't ignoring what I asked it to! Recursive ignores might also be useful.
