Right now it's possible to specify ignore path patters when calling collectstatic management command.
It would be helpful, if I could set those patterns in settings, say, STATICFILES_IGNORE tuple.
This tuple should contain ignore patterns the command uses by default, so I can either supplement or override them.

This should be handled instead by writing a thin subclass of the staticfiles finder(s) you are using, overriding the 'list' method - and hardcoding/appending the global ignore patterns that are specific/common to your project.

The global settings namespace is only added to by Django in a very conservative way - and this usage would not qualify for a global setting.
