I would also like to have this feature. I like to have the source code of my projects which I compile on a build server on my iPad. But downloading the whole folder also downloads all the .o and other stuff I don't nedd.
this would increase speed, save space on the ipad, and be more green in general.
perhaps it could be in a performance section of preferences, or "mobile performance" as it would be most useful on the ipad/iphone, many full Mac install users would not care or prefer to have all the files.
"ignored filetypes (Global)"
maybe an "Other" or "Experimental" tab for features that have no home yet.
ill think more on this, but good idea.
For PHP applications running on Apache, there are .htaccess files which can be used multiple times in an application to grant or deny access to various folders. So an ignore list is really a necessity. In some cases, these files are also used to enable or disable php.ini settings. Thus, they can in some circumstances be a vital part of an application.
