Forcing a commit

I've searched the archives on this, and it seems apparrent that
Subversion has no analog for the CVS -f option to force a commit.

Our development team would like to force commits for built binaries. We
store the binaries in the subversion repository because it's a great way
to archive our builds and distribute them to coworkers and testers.
Maybe that's outside the scope of Subversion, but it works really well
for our team. However, it's irritating to have to update the folders
which store the installer images. These folders are not sotred in the
trunk, but in a separate tree for builds, parallel to the trunk.

The developers never care if there is a conflict, and on a slow net
connection it is frustrating to have to perform a big worthless update
right before a big commit.

Even better than a -f option on commit would be a svn:ignoreconflict
property.
