Interesting.

A fairly large part of your use case for the developer already exists - It's
called Eclipse&CVS. I'm using these 2 tools currently for my Java
development, and they do most of what you want (diff/merge/ignore .bak
files, etc.)

As far as the build management goes, that's more of a front-end tool
question than a repository issue. What it does need is for the repository to
support atomic commits and changesets.
BitKeeper and Arch are built around these concepts. Not sure to what extent
SVN supports them (haven't been here long.)

Then with a decent tool the builder could pick and choose which changesets
he/she needed and keep updating his/her repository to achieve consist
builds. Each successful build could be "tagged/branched". Developers could
compare the branches with their local builds to see what changesets would
need to be applied/unapplied to match the build "branch".

is(and some of the other radical ideas), go to the following website
