I had the exact same problem. What I ended up doing was creating
*.properties.sample files. The sample files are under version control,
and I svn:ignore the *.properties file. Whenever I change something to
the property file, nothing gets committed. If I change something to the
sample file, bingo !, things get to the repository.

Now, if only my build system would read my mind and know when it should
copy the diffs from *.properties to *.properties.sample :)
