You appear to be correct. I tried something similar adding 'foo' non-
recursively first, then setting the ignore property.. but there seems
to be no way to add the files within foo after that in a way that the
ignore property is used.

Some clarification is needed. I do think that tools like TortoiseSVN
will filter the list of 'unversioned resources' when you select the
'Add' action in a folder. But the command line tools don't seem to
have a way to use svn:ignore for the 'add' command.
