I want to add my vote for such a feature. But I really want something more.

I have a configuration file that is part of my project. It contains
passwords and such for each developer. Each developer must have this file,
but each is unique for that developer. I want it to be included in the
repository, so that new developers get a copy when they first checkout the
project, but I don't want each developer's private version to be commited.
Right now I have to ignore that file and handle it outside of SVN, but that
doesn't seem right.

I want some kind of 'inactive' storage so things can be stored in the repo
but not actively tracked.
