I didn't see that in the `add' and `import' references, and also not
in the `svn:ignore' section -- am I looking in the wrong place?

What I didn't realize, and couldn't find any docs for, is the fact
that no matter what you put in svn:ignore, it will not have any bad
effects on existing versioned files and future versioned stuff. (It
seems like a good behavior, and it seemed like this is the way svn
works -- I just couldn't find it documented explicitly.)
