I would prefer to keep a single file in sync with svn:ignore, and
".ignore" seems a fine name.  It's easy enough to sync the property
with the file with a script.  Once we understand SVN enough, we could
probably add something that automatically does this when someone
commits a .ignore.  But I could live with a simple script for some
time.  I added one in bin/sync-ignore.
