I thought we already skipped files starting with a dot. Can you put this 
as a bug on launchpad?

You could also make a feature request on launchpad to make this pattern 
configurable somehow, as we can't anticipate all things.

We could also just claim a section on wiki.zope.org. This has my 
preference because it's already there and maintained. Perhaps even we 
actually have such a section and I missed it. :)
