This would be great for some things, like, say *.class to ignore all compiled
Java classes. But this would not always be desired. For instance, the way I
usually use svn:ignore, I have a directory in the base of my project called
'build' where _all_ my built/temporary files go. All other files in my wc are
checked into the repository.

So I set svn:ignore to 'build' on my project root directory, and I don't want
it to be inherited. Usually. So perhaps an option would be in order?
