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

More info. Between 1.4.6 and 1.5.0 .so files were added to the default
values in
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/tags/1.5.0/subversion/include/svn_config.h.

Again my point is that I think these default values are dangerous and that
nothing should be ignored by default.
