No.

Thinking about it. If what you ask was possible what would happen if
someone chose to or accidentally ignored the root level folder.

Checkout the "project" and voila an empty WC, which you then cannot
select folders in to un-ignore

So it's a case of either svn deleting the ignorable content, if it's of
no value or better still be more careful when adding files/folder in the
first place.

At the very early stages of a repo it's a good idea to checkout a WC at
the root level and do a group review of the content while the original
material is still available. If you don't like what you see then kill
the repo and start again, adding just the material required. Remember
this stuff is going to be around for the lifetime of the repository once
folk start using it.
