"Local" properties? svn:externals

Hello all.

I want to know if its possible to set a property, specifically
svn:externals, in my working copy and have it _not_ ever get sent to
the repository.

Let me describe my repository layout to explain why:

/trunk/env/Python/
    This is a Python installation. Its in the "env"ironment section
because it is part of the basis of what makes up the customer's
environment, along with plugins and SQL scripts that are also stored
in subdirectories of /trunk/env/.

/trunk/py/apt
    This is our primary Python source code, where most everything goes.

/site/(site-name)/
   Site/customer specific information goes here. Specifically of
interest is /site/(site-name)/config, which contains various key files
that configure the system. We very much want them in version control.

Our working copy would end up looking something like:

C:\Python\ <-- /trunk/env/Python
C:\Python\apt\ <-- /trunk/py/apt
C:\Python\apt\config\ <--- /site/(site-name)/config

That's easily do-able by just setting a couple svn:externals -- but
then everyone would get those.

Now, in reality we wont be serving sites from trunk, but from release
branches and such, but in development and testing we often need to
evaluate stuff like above. I'd like to locally constrct a working copy
to work on by setting some properties then somehow preventing them
from ever being committed.

Can this be done?

Thanks.
