No, this is no problem.
What I tried to explain was
- if you're having multiple working copies, AND
- they're overlapping, AND
- you have files versioned in both,
THEN you might get a problem.

So, for example:
If "/" and "/etc" are two working copies, and "/etc" is not ignored for the "/", then
eg. property changes for "/etc" + "passwd" would be shared by "/etc/passwd" in the other
working copy.

In your example the paths are completely distinct, so there's no problem.

The ignore patterns format got changed, to accomodate the grouping functionality.
Yes, you can. The distribution includes a perl script to change the files in-place;
please look at the announcement.

I'll take a look.
Thanks for the reminder!
