I have several cases where I need a working copy of “everything but…”. To
keep from having to remove files/directories each time the working copy is
updated I remove their references from the .svn/entries file. (Be sure to
make a copy of the original.)

The first checkout still contains everything but at least I only have to
remove them once.

This may not be a “good” recommendation, but it works.

It would be very useful to be able do this programmatically. If files can be
ignored in the working copy on check in, why not files in the repository on
