I agree with the sentiment, and that it would be good for such
messages to be consistent.

The form “added N file(s)” is ugly to me, though. If these messages
are to be changed anyway, I would suggest:

    files ignored: N

    files added: N

which reads fine for any natural-number N:

    files added: 0
    files added: 1
    files added: 2
