Such point-and-click wizards are more of a hassle than a help.
If someone doesn't want to specify files to *exclude* in .gitignore,
then in Emacs a better thing to do would be to support a special file
.project with the same syntax as .gitignore but specifying what files
to *include* in the project.  Should such file also support specifying
buffer names, I'm not sure.
