Ignore versioned files again

I'm trying to use subversion as a version control for a product called
Citect, A SCADA system for plant monitoring.
The problem with this system is that it uses dbase database files as
output from the (compiler) but if the dbase files doesn't exist the
compiler doesn't create them.
This means that every local copy of the repository must contain thease
files but they should never be checked in to the project. The files i
checked in to the repository are just empty files so the compiler won't
The method with a template file could be use if it wasn't because there
are approx 100 of thease files in the project so the work to create a
new working copy would be tedious.
This can be worked around using scripts to populate the files etc and
this is what i need to do but i just want to try and see if someone
agree with me the need for a svn:ignore-versioned parameter.
What's the argument for not adding it? Has it just not gotten done yet
or are there arguments against it other then that it's unnessesary?
