which was back in which commit?  I'm trying to get an idea of how long
this entry has been stale.

I'm not opposed to this patch, but I personally like to leave .gitignore
entries in place for several releases after they are last useful, to
make incremental builds easier when jumping around between old and new
branches across the point where the file was removed (as long as the new
branch still ignores the file, then building the file in the old branch
doesn't hurt the new branch).  Of course, if I'm that involved in
backporting madness across branches, I'm also fine updating my own
.git/info/exclude for cruft that is built in only one of two branches,
rather than relying on per-branch .gitignore to do it for me.
