use the .gitignore file if it is present
Have plastic simply use the .gitignore file if it is present. Now that we support the online git repos like github bitbucket and VSO.
If you have .gitignore use that methodology and if you have .ignore use that methodology.
And maybe give user option to generate a .ignore file from a .gitignore.
Max Pixel commented
.gitignore is significantly more powerful than Plastic's ignore.conf, because it allows for ignores that are lower in the file to override unignores that are earlier in the file. Consider this:
generated cs files inside of an obj folder will be ignored with .gitignore, but not with Plastic ignore.conf.

https://github.com/github/gitignore Is a nice repo of helpful ignores if only plastic had the same or could just use the .gitignore
