I noticed that .cvsignore is still used in tool/dev/manicheck.pl and Autrius Tang suggested
to use 'svn propget svn:ignore' or 'svk propget svn:ignore'.
So that's the plan:
i. Migrate the changes in .cvsignore file into the svn:ignore property
ii. Tell manicheck.pl to query the SVN properties
iii. remove the .cvsignore files

t/src/manifest.t verifies that MANIFEST.SKIP is consistent with the
This make manicheck.pl real simple.
