repository-wide global ignores (FAQ?)

I checked both the svn book and the FAQ before asking this question,
and I'm quite surprised that I didn't find an answer to it in one of
those places. Hopefully I didn't just overlook it. :-)

In CVS, you can place a file called cvsignore in your repository's
CVSROOT directory. This because a global ignore list for the entire
repository. I can't find any equivalent of this in subversion. I see
/etc/subversion/config can have a global-ignores keyword, but this
appears to be a host-specific setting, not a repository-specific
setting, and it appears to impact the client than the server. It also
appears that the svn:ignore keyword doesn't work recursively, which is
not at all surprising since the semantics of how to make this
reasonable are not at all clear.

So.... is there a way to create global ignores that are
