No, but you don't need to perform an explicit checkin in the first place. What
you can do is use something like

        $ svn st | egrep "^(M| M)" | cut -c8- > commit.list

to collect a list of all modified files in the WC. Then you can edit out and
remove the 8 files (or use 'fgrep -v -f exclude.list' to automate this). Once
you have the files you _do_ want to, you can use the following to check them in:

        svn ci --targets commit.list

I can definitely see a use for a new option to checkin (--exclude-targets) which
would make this much easier.
