Hmmm... I know this is an ITP, but seeing you are the upstream
developer as well...

Do you think this program could be generizable? I mean, if you are
creating patterns for auto-generated files based on
$whatever_heuristic that spans a whole project, would it be possible
to use the output to create a .gitignore, .svnignore, or such as well?
