I think what I'd do in your situation, barring a change to repository
layout, would be to replace the "svn update" command in the top-level
menu with "update to revision", moving "svn update" into the sub-menu.
Then every time I do an update, I would leave the revision at HEAD but
click the "Choose items..." button.
This brings up a dialog showing your project tree, with a checkbox for
every file or folder in the project. The currently excluded files and
folders start with their checkbox unchecked (as far as I can tell) and
the included files and folders are checked.
Then you can deselect any new files or folders that got added. Of
course this assumes the number of new files is fairly small and
localized to a few directories each time you do an update, otherwise
this will be VERY tedious.
I can sort of see why you'd be missing the ability to update specific
files from the repository...
