[Suggestion]Allow editing build-in list of ignore file pattern

help

#1

Please help us by providing the following info. Before posting please make sure that you're running the latest available version for your oC release: https://owncloud.org/changelog/ + https://owncloud.org/changelog/desktop/

Steps to reproduce
1. Create a file with filename ends with ~.
2. Wait for sync.

Expected behaviour
The file is upload to the server.

Actual behaviour
The file is not uploaded because "*~" is in the ignore list.

Client configuration
Client version: 2.3.1
Client operating system: Windows 10

The build-in list of ignore file pattern is convenient, it filters many unwanted files. However, in some cases, it also filtered some file useful, such as files ends with ~. Why not make the build-in list editable?
