[feature request]: prevent subversion from keeping track of changes

I know the subject sounds a little strange to be a feature
request addressed to a version control system. So let me
explain: most development environments store their project-
oriented settings in text files within the project directory.
And most of this information changes very frequently
(nearly every commit) and is not a point of interest to
keep track of its changes. But some information (such as
the current version, release- and build-number the compiler
uses to generate the executable) is important. But indeed
not its history (moreover, one can run into trouble under
some circumstances).

To prevent the repository from beeing blown up by needless
information, I found it useful to be able to tell subversion
only to hold the latest version of a particular file
(lets say by a new property) and so overwrite the current
repository entry at each commit of this file. (The revision
number of this file should then always be 1 or 0 to show
this special treatment).

Would this be possible?

Thanks for your comments, Steffen.
