Symlink .gitignore to .hgignore to help out gits

Does git support symlinks on Windows? (I know hg doesn't.)
Ugh really?  I guess b/c of FAT32?

No idea about git.  Alright, lowest common denominator.

Summary: Symlink .gitignore to .hgignore to help out people using git → Copy .hgignore to .gitignore to help out people using git
No, I mean, hg supports symlinks on other platforms, just not Windows.
I understood what you meant.  I don't want to leave broken stuff in the repo for windows users.

Whoops, .hgignore and .gitignore are incompatible by default.  Great.

Feel free to add a git-compatible .gitignore.

Add a .gitignore file that's similar to .hgignore

I didn't convert some of the patterns because I wasn't sure what they meant.
