[PATCH] Improved "git add"
This fixes everybodys favourite complaint about "git add", namely that it doesn't take directories. We use "git-ls-files --others" to generate an arbitrary list of filenames, and thus also automatically honor ignore-files while we're at it. Side note: there's a lot of room for improvement here. In particular, if we have a long list of filenames (importing a big archive), this will just do a big stupid for-loop and add them one at a time. Maybe it should use generate-list | xargs -0 git-update-idex --add -- instead. Also, I think we should have a default ignore list if we don't find a .git/info/exclude file. Ignoring "*.o" and ".*" by default would probably be the right thing to do. But I think this is a good first step. Use the "-n" flag to just show the list of files to be added without adding them.
