Maybe not the best title, no, but the files they ignore are generated
upon building to test a change, and then impact further commits, if you
follow my thinking. It made sufficient sense at the time.

They're an annoyance to me personally. I use Git-Gui to manage staging
and committing, and the presence of all these files cluttering the
unstaged files list means that whenever I click 'stage changed' I'm
forced to click 'no' in a dialog asking if I want to stage them. If new
files are introduced, then it requires carefully picking through the
list to find them.
The first fix for the translation issue is even more of an annoyance,
since it not only lengthens build times but adds a bunch of modified
files to the unstaged list, which I then have to select and do 'commit'
-> 'reverse changes' on to clear.
