Agreed a single top level should be ok for most things. I was in the 
process of seeing what non-repeating contents we have. I attach the results.

My approach was to add a single top .gitignore for those common items 
and then add the ones specific to each lower level lowering the number 
of ignore files we have.

I was going to remove the .cvsignore's a little later once things have 
settled down. They should be ignored by git.
