Fine with me.

This would be bad. Some projects keep all distributed files on CVS, even
those that are generated.

I have never heard of GNU id-utils. Not sure if we want to ignore "ID".

There is another issue. For most (if not all) entries in this list, the
directories with such names should not be ignored, only regular files.

For example, a file named "core" should be ignored. But a directory named
"core" should not be ignored! I have seen two times people having problems
importing Linux kernel into CVS because of that.

By the way, I guess there are directories matching *.lib in a few
projects. It's good to be prepared.
