I don't like the idea of walking ignored subdirectories at all. There
are really important performance reasons not to do it that can't be
worked around. Consider the case where the number of ignored files is
_much_ larger than the number of checked in files. Simply running find
| wc in my home directory takes minutes.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
