retying - Excluding directories on a sticky basis

Sorry for any inconvenience. I used the wrong From-address when sending
before. I didn't recieve anything from the list. Maybe it didn't get
through...
The original message follows:

Hello.
This is my first message to this list.

Please see this short (3 posts) thread at the php community:
http://forums.devnetwork.net/viewtopic.php?p=145846#145846

I am leaving CVS in favour of subversion because of the copy and move
abilities on files and directories subversion has.

But this message is a request for tips on how to stickily disallow a subdir of
a workdir to be included in the operations svn performs. By stickily I mean
that I want to define this restriction to the workdir and leave it that way
thereafter. The thread linked to above provides an example that was a halfway
success using a CVS alias module with "!" exclusion entries. It works on the
first checkout, but as soon as next update is performed, that exclusion I set
is not consulted. The effort is wasted.

I have not started using subversion for serious work yet, but I have read the
almost all of the "book" online today and yesterday. The book mentions
externals which include subdirs foreign to the current repository into the
workdir. this would have sufficed for me in an inverted sense (I mean that I
could split my project into small parts and link them in with externals), but
the manual says very clearly that svn will NOT recurse into subdirs that
represent an external - which breaks the behaivour I am looking for.

Please read the short thread linked to above and give me a comment on how I
should best use subversion to accomplish this.

Best regards
