What is pattern syntax for svn:ignore?

The svn book could use more examples on using svn:ignore.

My first several use cases for this did not go smoothly. The book talks
about patterns at several points but the syntax is not explained.
For example, is the **/ notation used in places like Ant supported?
What glob wildcards are supported. Etc. Here was my first use case:

The Gimp tool creates .xvpics directories whenver it edits files. I'm
not sure what they are but I don't want them version controlled. So my
usecase is: Ignore anything in any directory named .xvpics and all its
children, starting from the current directory and all including all its
current children.
What is the pattern?

But beyond answering the question, the answer should hopefully make it
into the book.
