You can't use the ignore-on-commit list because that feature uses the
underlying subversion changelist feature which is onl;y for versioned
files. Maybe there is some other way.

Why don't you use 'revert changes from this revision' in the log
dialog? That will do exactly what you need, although it leaves those
files in a modified state, so you have to be careful not to commit
them by accident.
