  What's in a name?

I was always a little sad that povray uses *.ini and *.inc . Something 
with a little more magic would have been nice instead of ubergenerics 
that many compete for. ("Do you want to open MASM?", um no.)

Today I ran into ./source/core .
As in:

rm -f libpovray.a
rm -f *~ core *.core
rm: cannot remove 'core': Is a directory
Makefile:1034: recipe for target 'clean' failed

This is qmake foo.  core is hardcoded into the clean step. :(
google says the only option is to rename this directory. :(
(I fruitlessly tried "QMAKE_CLEAN -= core")
