I don't see a problem here: you set the "ignore" property on the tree
itself, of course, not on each individual file.

In any case, I don't understand what this has to do with VC: no matter
which front-end you're going to use, you'll hit the same problem, and
the answer is always the same: use the "ignore" property.
