It would appear that someone has already written a Perl module called  
VCS::LibCVS::IgnoreChecker (part of the VCS::LibCVS package) which  
does the heavy lifting for you.


The module is licensed, "under the same terms as Perl itself", so  
either you could redistribute it or add instructions to  
webkit.opendarwin.org about how to install the module from CPAN.
