I'm trying to load some project into darcs repository and I have lot of
directories with the name core. It is faling to add all them because they are
considered as boring.

It would be good to recognize boring files & boring directories, because
correctly it silently skipped directory with name "core" and failed only on
adding childs of that "boring" core directory.

We cannot distinguish between files and directories in a boring 
regexp, since trailing slashes are removed when we convert to the 
internal representation.

The workaround is to temporarily remove that regexp from the 
boringfile, add -r everything, then restore the boringfile. This 
works because a file that is already in the repo is never considered
