I was referring to a conversation a while ago to add them.

Yes I want hg status to ignore them so I don't have to type "hg status 
-mard". I have a least three "home" directories with a .hgignore that I 
have to copy across. :)

I was not familiar with "hg purge" but it seems to me that an extension 
that specifically deletes untracked file should not be honouring the 
.hgignore rules. Though I guess if it uses hg status to find those 
untracked files ...

Not sure what consideration weighs the most here. :)
