Handle Rakefile (a la Makefile) and .rake. Make them seen as both --rake
and --ruby, because they are.

rakefile.rb is also a name to recognize

Andy, are you planning some generic way to match a file's basename, rather than just the extension?

I could use this for --cmake, which would recognize CMakeLists.txt (basename), and *.cmake (extension)

I'm not sure how to implement this nicely, but given some suggestions, I'd give it a try.

This isn't going to happen until ack 2.0.

These are handled in ack 2 now.
