One thing I miss with "ignore-on-commit" is that I actually want all
changelists to behave this way: to be unselected by default.

I usually use change lists to mark some work in progress. When
committing I have to start with unselecting all, then I usually select
the non-in-changelist items (they are grouped in TortoiseSVN as well)
or the changelist I want to commit.

If anyone wants to keep the current behaviour where only
"ignore-on-commit" is special, it could be customizable, e.g.
configure it to ignore all "ignore-*" or "WIP-*" lists, or "*".
