I don't think it's worth adding a special-case for that.

Again, while your /var/named/chroot/proc directory might be versioned
(if you're versioning the chroot jail in SVN), any files or directories
within it will be unversioned, and thus ignored by 'svn patch'. Unless
you add files from the mounted proc file system to svn. And that is a
very stupid thing to do.
