Default value for global-ignores - Import excluded .so files

Hi,

I currently have the same issue as described in this thread.

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2008-11/0211.shtml

I'm trying to import the JDK and all .so files are being quietly excluded
from the import every time. The above thread points to .so files being
included in the default value for global-ignore even though the book doesn't
include it in the list, as can be seen at
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.advanced.confarea.html#svn.advanced.confarea.opts
.

My thought is that having default ignore values is a mistake to begin with.
It seems dangerous to me to have a default ignore value that prevents
Subversion from importing certain files and having that default value
quietly documented (ignoring the error in the doc for now) in an obscure
section of the documentation or a config file that they wouldn't necessarily
read for a long time.

Does anyone else agree? Am I missing some important use case that drove
this decision in the first place?

Thanks.
Justin
