You want it, you hack it!

Meta-CVS works as you want. It has a TYPES file which can specify that
files having a certain suffix ought to be added using a given CVS
expansion mode, or that they should be ignored.

This is honored for every file that is passed as an argument to ``mcvs
add''. If you do ``mcvs add foo.o'' and .o files are to be ignored,
nothing happens.

This is as it should be. The TYPES file represents the project's
policy; some random user command should not override that policy. If we
don't want .exe files in the repository, the add command should defend
that decision for us, even if weakly.
