Your point is good, in general, and I use .gitignore for some of my
projects, where I indeed have similar directory structure. But do you
expect surf to get that far that you need to add subdirectories and
multiple obj files (and probably latex auxilary files of the pdf
documentation?). I don't. And thus I consider .gitignore bloat.
