Feature request and use case for --no-auto-props and --no-ignore checkboxes

I would like to propose adding checkboxes for equivalents of
--no-auto-props and --no-ignore for add and import operations. This
has already been proposed in this thread[1] and Stefan decided not to
do it. I think I have a good use case for this feature so maybe you'll
reconsider.

The --no-auto-props and --no-ignore options are very useful when you
want to keep third party code in your SVN repositories. For my own
code I have a big list of ignores and auto-props that I compiled in
time and I always want to use it. But then I use some open source
project that I want to bundle with my source for easy access,
versioning etc. But when importing the third party code, I would very
much prefer to leave it untouched. For example, a lot of times there
are files with mixed line endings in the third party code and since my
auto-props try to set svn:eol-style to native that ends up rejecting
the files because of the mixed line endings. Or maybe some tests in
the third party code depend on line endings being of a certain kind.
If the checkboxes would be there, I would check them when adding third
party code, now I have to fallback to using the command line client.

What do you think? Is this good enough motivation to change your mind
about the feature? I could even try implementing it.

By the way, thanks for Tortoise, it's very useful software.
