        The various cvsignore processing is used to ignore generated
        files when doing "cvs -nq". This is needed to keep a clean cvs
        -nq output. A second part of the process is getting the "make
        clean" to get rid of all generated files. With the cvsignore
        files being used it is hard to tell if the clean did everything
        or not. 

        What would be handy is if you could disable the cvsignore
        processing on a "cvs -nq" command. If that was done after a
        clean you could make sure everything was removed. Currently I
        zap the .cvsignore, which in my case is most everything, and run
        "cvs -nq". The default ignores and the CVSROOT/cvsignore is
        still ignored in this case however.


        New switch that disables cvsignore file processing
