This is not a stupid question at all:-)

It can't be done, since svn:ignore can't contain newlines. Adding Icon?
might do it, but it will ingore all files named Icon followed by exactly
one character. That might be acceptable.

The truth is that svn disallows newlines in filenames, so it is good that
you don't actually *want* these in the repository:-)
