The, "official" recommendation that's in the Subversion FAQ is at
http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html#ignore-commit . It's basically
your second option, except there's no automatic copy from the template;
you just have to remember to make a copy yourself.

Personally, I use the ignore-on-commit changelist, as Josh Reynolds
suggested. You do have to remember to manually put it on the changelist
though. I don't think there's any completely automated way to handle this.
