Debugging that way isn't something I would want to do or recommend that
others do but if it works for you, lets not make your life difficult. My
previous veto was due to:
a) I thought it was bad practice (too easy to commit local changes to
config files, too easy to include local changes in a release build) and
b) because it reverted a change I needed.

I won't object to adding the ignores you need providing that build.xml
is updated to ensure that they are also ignored as part of any build. A
quick glance shows temp, work and logs should be OK but
conf/<enginename> will need a change or two to ensure it is ignored.
