Ignore files?

I know how to ignore single files, but how do you ignore entire classes of file in your project? I'm having anoyances with .##, ##, *~ files lying around my directories, and just deleting them isn't appropriate when the main editor I use while shelled in remotely leaves them lying around.

Hey, perhaps IDEA could have a console interface so I don't need to use the other editor. ;)

Is there any way to possibly write a plugin module which would add a VirtualFileFilter to the VirtualFileSystems or the FileTypeManager (which i notice has an "isFileIgnored" method). It would be very easy to write a VirtualFileFilter implementation to match a virtual file on regular expressions. The question is where and how that filter would be added.
