Well, I do feel strongly about it. It has proven to be a useful reference for
me (and others), time and time again.
It is absolutely trivial for a developer to ignore those files using some very
simple script wrappers. I've been doing it for years, on a wide range of
products. It's as simple as
grep $* | grep -v '\.svn/|\.git/|,v$'
and just augment from there. I have a slightly more robust version at work I
can post if people are really interested (can't get at the office network from
home, so tomorrow). But really, this is a simple problem to solve.
