Bruce, Andy is right. You should just do some experiments, now that
you've read the docs.

If you mean that only a versioned directory can have the "svn:ignore"
property set on it, that's correct. But that property doesn't cause
the directory on which it is set to be ignored! Rather, it causes
objects *in* that directory to be ignored, if they are not versioned
themselves and if they match a pattern in the ignore list (which is
the value of the aforementioned property).
