I think if we take care of editor backups and similar things with a
global ignore with reasonable defaults then the ignore lists will
largely depend on the particular project, so an automatic setup may have
limited use.  

You get into needing to define particular project styles or templates,
which would be good for a plugin but not so good for the core.

I think a plugin would be appropriate.  We should add a post-init hook
that plugins can link into.
