Ouch!  Thanks for the warning...

Two random ideas:
  -- pass dirs to ignore_file with a trailing / on them.  So net/core/
     will not be matched by the (default in monotone as well) pattern
  -- actually separate ignore_file and ignore_dir into two separate
     hooks.  Maybe cleaner; makes .mt-ignore support strange...
