Ok, nice.  Thanks for the explanation.  So it is like .cvsignore for
nautilus kinda.

There isn't one yet, which is why I said use the style of the existing
file.  I seem to be the only one who cares about it though.  So it is
not enforceable until you see a file in the MonoDevelop root dir called
HACKING that explains it.

At some point the parser will be able to do some automatic formatting,
which we will want to be consistent with the style of the code in the MD
repo.  So that people using MD to hack MD will not have to worry.
However, we do not have that yet.
