Not really, and it does seem to be a bit dated.  In addition to ID as
suggested by Assar Westerlund, Pavel Roskin submitted a patch on 30 Jan
2001 that proposed adding:

        .deps                Automake
        .depend              Linux, MC and possibly others
        .libs                Libtool
        *.gz                 Gzip
        *.bz2                Bzip2
        *.flags              Linux
        *.la                 Libtool
        *.lo                 Libtool

and I'd also suggest adding:

        *.lib                DOS/Windows library
        *.dll                DOS/Windows dynamic load library
        *.sl                 HP-UX sharable library
        *.class              Java binary
        *.backup             Misc backup file
        *.dvi                TeX output
        *.info*              GNU info file

Perhaps a discussion on info-cvs is in order to see what people think
about these or other additions?

Yep, we'd probably be dead by now if it wasn't for Twinkies. -- Calvin
