svn commit usage survey

I am in the process of writing a wrapper script for 'svn commit' that
will allow me to delete paths from the log message that I do not want
to commit. I got the idea of this functionality from SVK and
immediately saw the usefulness. Several ":q!", <answer "a" to abort
questions> later I decided that I HAD to have that functionality.

My questions to the list are:

How do you typically use 'svn commit' when you have some files you do
not want in the commit?
Do you often run into an issue where you have one file that you do not
want to commit, directly beside several that you do?
Is the only option in this case manually specifying every file you
*do* want to include in the commit? Or am I missing something?

It seems to me that this would be a common occurrence and so it really
surprises me that a similar wrapper script has not already been
written. But perhaps I am using Subversion in an atypical manner?

What are your thoughts?
