Bug 537271 - Add .pyo files to .hgignore, r=ted

The sources in this directory are imported from the Python 3.1.1 release,
from Python-3.1.1/Modules/_ctypes/libffi_msvc. The purpose of these sources,
as explained in README.ctypes, is to make libffi work with MSVC on x86. If
a time comes when libffi natively supports this platform, these sources will
no longer be necessary.

The checkout was done using the command:
svn export http://svn.python.org/projects/python/tags/r311/Modules/_ctypes/libffi_msvc libffi_msvc

The Python sources were minimally patched to compile with Mozilla. See
mozilla.patch for details.
