I'm resurrecting my patch to support a filter called 'none' (which is turning out to be harder than I thought). Off the top of my head, it would the following would give us a pretty solid solution:
- Finish my patch for 'none' as a filter, so '**=cleverencode' can be
reasonably used (currently you can't specify specific files *not* have cleverencode, making it unsuitable in practice without the concept of 'none')
Add support for versioned 'filter rules' - eg, /.hgfilters or similar.
This might be pushing my luck, but: add 'defensive' support to core hg for
this feature - if /.hgfilters exists, hg should refuse to operate on the working tree unless the win32text extension is enabled.
Sounds great to me. The latter might indeed be hard to get into the core, but seems like a good idea to try.
