Unfortunately, it isn't possible to have it load an external file. From the
VIM documentation (section Automatically setting options)

'No other commands than "set" are supported, for security reasons (somebody
might create a Trojan Horse text file with modelines).'

The lines to be added are:

 * vim:ts=4:sw=4:expandtab:tw=80:fo=tcroq
 * vim:isk=a-z,A-Z,48-57,_,.,-,>
 * vim:cino=>1s,e0,n0,f0,{.5s,}0,^-.5s,=.5s,t0,+1s,c3,(0,u0,\:0

Which are fairly uniqe and easy to sed, if there is a need to change them.

What I would like is for someone else who uses VIM to look at them, and see if
they match Subversion coding style. (I think they do, based on my tests, but
thought I would check with someone else).
