I was being facetious. Erik was playing the game of principles, laws
and absolute truths, and in that spirit I manufactured a completely
ineffectual ignore pattern containing a slash on my local system. In
the real world I agree that /option is mindnumbingly unlikely to clash
with anything. I can think of a few ways ignore patterns with slashes
could come to be by accident, but that's all theoretical.
