What I usually do in this situation is have a file called
<blah>.example (or something like that) be the file under version
control with the default settings in it. Then when I check out a
working copy, I just copy the file to the right name and do whatever I
need to it. Oh, and the correct file name is added to svn:ignore so
you never have to worry about it or anyone else checking in unwanted
changes.

Works well on teams I've been on. Something I've done since CVS.
