additions are reasonable, but things like 'Debug' and 'Release' looked 
like they could conflict with later files/directories. Eric, can you 
explain for us non-windows folk where those files come from and what 
they are?

These are standard MSVC++ output directories, and they get created every time you do a build.  They typically contain many kinds of object files and build byproducts.  They are frequently included in .cvsignore files, because (1) they're a build byproduct and (2) they're all over most MSVC++ build trees.

They're actually named after the "Debug" and "Release" targets associated with every MSVC++ project.  If you add new build configurations, you'll get more directories.

I hope this helps!
