It shouldn't *be* a new backend function, but it should probably *call*
such a function.  The reason I say that is that there are some ignorable
files that don't fit in the .svnignore/.cvsignore model. 

As an example, right now I have in there logic to ignore Makefile if
it has a peer named Makefile.in or Makefile.am.

This is a good idea, but I have several higher-priority changes in my
queue.  Are you interested enough to do it?
