As Andy suggested, try setting "svn:needs-lock" on these files. then
only lock the file(s) when you are changing the actual content.

(or any SCM) is to retrofit SCM onto something that doesn't fit very well.

There are no plug-ins per se, but there are client side hooks for
TSVN, and SVN commands can be embedded in BAT (or other) scripts.

Not to sound sarcastic, but you get from any SCM what you put in it.
However, hook scripts can be used to help achieve your objective. At
my clients who use TSVN, hook scripts are often used to copy versioned
template files to local unversioned files - in some cases, even
merging template changes into the local files so that local changes
are not lost.
