So here's the catch? I don't think so.
But the manpage isn't totally clear in this matter.

When I specify just -o, it gives me files which weren't ignored too.
-o -i gives me only ignored files.
Plain -i returns nothing.

With git directory, compare:
git-ls-files -o -i -X .gitignore

git-ls-files -o

The remainder is:
git-ls-files -o -X .gitignore

I have the documentation built.
(Yes, I'm not including its .gitignore on purpose)

Also good. I have *~ in ignored too, so I think -o -i will suffice.
