Request: Soft ignore of versioned files

I want to ignore certain versioned files. From the documentation I see this is not possible as in "Versioned files and folders can never be ignored - that's a feature of Subversion". That being said, I would very much like to version yet ignore certain files. Here's why: we want to use svn to version both the src code and the test environment for a project. This includes test database instances as this would allow us to check out a test instance from a tag/branch/or head to do things like regression testing. The issue is that under normal operations the instant a database is accessed, it changes (most commonly because access timestamps are modified) and the working project shows up as modified even though for all intents and purposes it is not from a source control perspective.

Is there anything that can be done?
