Feature Request: Ignore files while committing

A discussion about ignore patterns reminded me of a similar feature I
often wished for.

Projects sometimes contain auto-generated files which nevertheless are
wanted under the version control. The usual example is IDE
configuration files, like .dof in Delphi.
These files are changed on each project build, however, the changes
are normally NOT committed, but either reverted or simply unchecked in
commit dialog.
The solution offered by Subversion book (create separate template
file) is workable but less inefficient and inconvenient, since it
requires manual merge of changes every time the file is updated, which
is tedious and error-prone.

Create a separate TSVN setting, similar to 'global ignore pattern',
something like 'Do not commit by default pattern', with the syntax
identical to ignore pattern.
When opening commit dialog, set state of checkbox to unchecked for the
files which satisfy the pattern.
