Would be nice if it didn't search in *~ files and .*.swp files (and any other temporary/backup files). I'll send a pull request if I have time.

Definitely. Although I personally advocate:

  • disabling .swp files
  • maintaining vim state outside of the working directory:
set noswapfile
set undofile
set undodir=~/.vim/undo

But I'm sure there's more to sensible ignore defaults than just the .git/.svn we have right now.
