Sounds like the pre-commit hook is your "best" bet. If you can control
the client then adding them to an "ignore list" is also an option, but
it sounds like you are handling the stuff on the server vs. using svn
clients? If it's not automatic, you could have your pre-commit script
delete them first too...
