Idea X - Idea module configuration files location and display

Should the *.iml file and similar to be automatically excluded from the Project View , Project Files, Version Control etc. I don't see any reason to edit or even view those Idea internal files. It would be even better to keep them under .idea folder

If excluded from VCS, you won't be able to share your configuration, which is very inconvinient;
Not sure about Project View, whether it should be filtered out from view

If taken under .idea folder, you won't be able to share .iml files between projects

This is exactly the objective, not to save this in VCS, every developer has it is own configuration anyway, may be it can be done optionally, Idea auxiliary files should not be part of the source as far as I can see.

At least there's a common situation when .iml files are shared through VCS
So we can not hide these files from VCS

On the other hand, you can keep .iml unversioned and inside .idea

I do this now already, would be nice to have an option to hide them / exclude from the Project view as well. I agree though that this is very minor.

Thanks
