Not for me. Although I use TeX, I have used the extensions .toc,
.idx, and .log for various text files in the past (and still use .log
a lot); they're obvious mnemonics and the 8.3 habit is hard to break
For this particular case, what about:
;; Filter out some unwanted default ignores
'(".log" ".idx" ".toc")))
