Yes, svn:ignore can be applied recursively - all subdirectories will
have this property modified. However, the property is not inherited, so
if you create a new subdirectory, it won't automatically get that
property from its parent directory.

As a general rule I prefer to set svn:ignore rather than using the
global ignore list. It means that the ignore property is picked up by
all clients when they update, so you don't have to check that everyone
has the correct global ignores set.
