Oh, and btw, maybe you didn't realize that "git-ls-files --others" already
basically does what your script does? Without any filtering - it was meant
to be run from a script, so something like
for i in $(git-ls-files --others)
if [ ! match_ignore "$i" ]; then
case $(file -b $i)
was what I was thinking of.
