Well, nobody complained about this when using the SVN addin, so maybe it
is no so very annoying :). You can use the Show all files option in the
project pad and use the Add command there.

However, I don't dislike the idea of showing the untracked files in the
status view. I would prefer not showing them by default, and provide a
command for toggling its view. Then you would be able to select one of
them and do an "Add" to start tracking the file, or an "Ignore" to add
it to the ignores list.

Yes, you can get a list of untracked files.
