Still not following you :-). We have tons of Visual Studio projects
stored below the same folder on our Subversion server. Setting a
sane, inheritable ignore pattern on that folder would mean that we
could forget about this whole ignore ordeal forever from that point

We could stop caring in situations including, but not limited to, these:
 * new Visual Studio projects
 * new colleagues (new TSVN install)
 * workstation reinstalls (new TSVN install)

I still do not find "global to the client machine" even slightly "global".

Nobody says the implementation has to be perfect from day one.
Well, nobody except for the guys over at dev@subversion ;-).
