Aha, the missing piece is that "svn add --force" will add files
recursively. (I suppose that import can do something similar.)

Back to the book -- this seems like such a corner case that
mentioning it in the svn:ignore section is mostly misleading (like I
tought that "svn add foo" might not work if "foo" is ignored). It
would probably be better to mention the effect of svn:ignore on `add'
in its own reference page, right after the "--force" flag is
described.
