I, on the other hand, would like to see .rej and .orig removed from
the ignore list. I don't like having these polluting my working
directory, and 'hg status' is the easiest way to find them (if
they aren't ignored).
Or if there's some way to configure my personal .hgrc to ignore
those particular ignore lines, that would be fine too :)
If those were to be removed from .hgignore then there would be a high likelihood of someone doing "hg addremove" and inadvertently tracking them. The purpose of .hgignore is to prevent inadventently tracking files that shouldn't be tracked.
"hg status -i" will list all ignored files that are present in your working directory. For other options, "hg help status".
