Here's another patch for that etckeeper publish (applies on top of the 
first one).  These changes make it only remove files it should, even if 
you accidentally put bad filenames in $PRIVFILES -So it's safer to test.

The publishing process goes through each commit, so the more there are 
the longer it takes.  Maybe I should make it only load some customizable 
max number of commits into the sanitized repo.

It goes without saying, but I'll do it any way: Check the generated repo 
for compromising data before making it public.

I'll mail this to Joey Hess sometime this weekend, I suppose...  I'm not 
sure what "mass" appeal this would have though.
