Ok. That's what I suspected. I was just hoping there was a flag to
override the "ignore *" on a case-by-case basis when I actually *do*
want Bazaar to track a whole directory.

On second thought, its a slightly different need. In this case I might
even be satisfied if it *only* tracked the file addition / deletion
info! There seem to be two seperate needs here: (1) when one
explicitly adds a file since one edits it makes changes etc. (2) when
one only wants to know what was added when to a dir. A sort of a
"local dir. struct" snapshot to get rollback.

But maybe that just isn't possible and I'm missing some key detail!
Just curious.
