inverse of svn:ignore property

Another item for the svn wishlist, unless someone can suggest another way
of doing this.

I have a situation where we want to only version control files with
specific extensions and ignore all others. The ignore list would be very
long and would continually have to be updated as new file extensions
appeared that we don't want version controlled.

So what I'd like is an opposite to the svn:ignore property or something
like that which specifies only the patterns to version control instead of
the patterns not to version control.
Another way to handle this may be to make the ignore property handle egrep
expressions like *^(cat|dog) , which would ignore anything except cat and
dog files.

If there is already a way to do this that I've missed please let me know.

Thanks to all the developers for a great product.
