I recently sent out mail to my coworkers explaining how to solve
exactly this problem. (I'd give credit to whomever gave me the idea,
but I've forgotten who it was -- I certainly didn't think of it myself)

    If, like me, you get annoyed that your working copy includes a
    bazillion megabytes of uninsteresting stuff, here's a way to suppress
    it: just switch each directory to svn://server/empty, like this:

    for i in boring* dull stupid etc
    do svn switch svn://server/empty $i

    This will delete all the versioned files in those directories, and
    thenceforth, doing "svn up" will _not_ bring them back.

    To bring them back, just switch them back to where they were

    for i in boring* dull stupid etc
    do svn switch svn://server/trunk/$i $i

... when you [find Lisp], many of your friends will become
rather... distant, as if you'd inexplicably stopped bathing.
