Including instead of ignoring files

I find that, at any given time in my current directory there are more
files that I don't want to put under version control. I'm aware of
svn:ignore property, but I find it very inconvenient to have to
register the more numerous files that I want ignored; I'd much prefer
to specifically list those relatively few files that I want under
version control.

The only workaround I can think of (and which I really don't like) is
to get in the habit always naming my many non-repository-bound files
with a leading underscore, and adding the pattern _* to the svn:ignore

The reason I don't like this particular workaround (aside from a
visceral aversion to giving most of my files and directories
odd-looking names) is having to perform this configuration for every
project directory and all the subdirectories below it. What a pain.
Is there a way to specify a default value for svn:ignore once and for

Or better yet, is there a better way to work around the problem of
having to maintain huge lists of files to ignore for each directory?
