svn ignore command feature request.

Guys,

I understand how to use the svn:ignore but it is not the most
convenient or logical user interface. Would it be possible to provide
an ignore command line option that would provide a convenient
interface to add files/folders to the ignore properties list?

ie:
dc_at_lt-dc:~/workspace/project> svn st
? .classpath
? .project
? target
? my.file
dc_at_lt-dc:~/workspace/project> svn ignore target
I target
dc_at_lt-dc:~/workspace/project> svn add my.file
A my.file
dc_at_lt-dc:~/workspace/project> svn st
? .classpath
? .project
I target
A my.file
dc_at_lt-dc:~/workspace/project> svn ci -m "add stuff and ignore other stuff..."
...

This ignore command could set svn:ignore properties this is just a
convent easy to use interface to the svn:ignore functionality.

I am not on your dev list but I am a long time user of subversion and
so thank you very much for this great software. It just occurred to
me today that there must be an easier was to ignore files but I can
not find it in the command line interface that I use or in the issue
tracker so I am posting this a feature request to see if a dev mailing
list member picks up on it and feels it worthy of taking further.

Thanks,

Doug
