errr no, you totally miss the point here. i wish to exclude them from the **directory ** listings. i wish to exclude them from version control. I do not want project configuration files cluttering up my source trees. In fact, I woud prefer it if ST2 put the different project files somewhere other than inside the project directories - say in ~/.project.sublime-project would be nicer (but again.. as a DOT file).
Open project could then scan ~ and give a list of projects that are available instead of me having to browse to ~/projects/language/operating-system/planetary-alignment/project-name/ (im making that up of course). But even having to do this would be cleaner if the project and workspace files were HIDDEN
