Subversion (SVN) doesn't use workspaces, so the .o files are only on the
local machine. Standard "ignore" rules tell the SVN client to not add them
to the repository.

In the working collection model that we agreed on, if you put those .o files
into the working collection, then yes: they're going to go into the
repository. If you didn't want them there, then don't put them there.

We have no other precedent that says "well, ignore <these> files when
performing your operation." I see no reason to do the same for a checkin of
a working collection.
