Making them more visible to the repo solves a relatively minor build-time
problem but it does it by trading against a potentially catastrophic
commit to the repo.
I would rather not have the potential for such a catastrophic commit to
the repo, and solve the visibility issue for build-time checks some
other way. Having to fix massive repo bloat from a committer who makes
a mistake and then potentially commits hundreds or thousands of files is
a non-starter. Minor commit errors by committers are not what I am
worried here. It's the big ones that those patterns help prevent.
