Not out of the box... but you can use a server hook script to do this. I think there is one floating around written by a buy on the svn mail list that you can specify rules like this in an ini file.

No... you can selectively choose by revision not file. If you commit 1 file in that revision then it is one file. I think the best practice is to make sure each commit is a single fix or feature or whatever to help here.
