.gitignore: remove editor- and OS-specific files
Whenever Vim opens a file, it creates a .<filename>.swp file in the same directory as the file. Emacs adds *~ backup files. macOS creates .DS_Store files. Other editors and OS' surely do their own thing. Rather than add each one's own swap/backup file to this .gitignore, encourage users to add the corresponding items to their system-wide gitignore files.
