yes. i don't see any way to customize (despite words that say you can, 
must be in the source code
that i can do that) rat's list of file types that matter. *.vcproj and 
readme style text files would seem
to fall into the category of files that don't matter. i'm working on the 
complaints today to resolve the
legitimate issues.

not sure what you're saying here. we do distribute velocity in our 
binary image. because it is
needed at runtime by the compiler. we have no other runtime 
dependencies. the rest (javacc,
junit, apr, ant, etc.) are build dependencies. are you suggesting we 
should put those into our
source tree as well? (personally, i'd like that, as the current scheme 
has a pretty high barrier
to getting started and lots of twitchy settings to keep it working).
