[libvirt] [RFC] maint: forbid most files without extension



* .gitignore: Add rule that requires . in name, then add exemptions.
---

Given Chris' recent accident in committing a binary file, then
blasting the list with it, here's a (hack) approach to prevent a
relapse in the future.  It assumes that non-binary files either
have an extension, or are easy enough to enumerate.

Personally, I do NOT want to apply this patch.  It has the nasty
side-effect of rendering .git/info/exclude useless (git unfortunately
stops processing ignore rules once it finds an explicit accept rule,
so any reject rules in .git/info/exclude for files containing '.' are
overruled as accepts by this patch).  Hence, this is only an RFC,
documenting my thought process.
