Thanks Garrett, but this is not what I'm after. I don't want the source to 
be polluted with noise. I don't want to have a special grep script for 
each new feature someone invents :( Why can't it store the files 
elsewhere? x?emacs keep temp files, but you can tell it not to store them 
in the same tree as the source.

Not talking about the fact that now the disk requirements are suddenly at 
least twice bigger.
