For all I know that's what is in one of those scripts ;-)

Seriously, I rarely have svn:ignore set up to ignore everything that
it possibly could. I often have experimental files or data files of
some sort in my WC that I don't want to ignore, and I don't want to
add. These are test files that are specific to my working environment.
