I simply fail to follow you here, what on earth are you talking about..
I find the issue Colin states very true, its very confusing to see tagging
and regexpes fighting, certainly when its possible to _not_ commit explicitly
added files because your regexpes say they are not elligable (see the
relevant bugreport).

I would appreciate an answer to colin's question that would make me see
your way, so maybe I don't have to curse soo badly the next time this bites
