I either specify the files on the command line 'svn commit foo.java' or
I use the 'svn commit --file' arg to specify the list of files I want to

        svn status | grep -v '^?' | sed 's/^.......//' | grep -v 'bad
stuff' > files.txt
        svn commit --file files.txt -M "..."

The only time I've had to use the '--file' arg was to checkin all files
for large merge except the the one or two files had the 'subversion
breaks if a file was both added and deleted in the commit'. (hich is
supposedly fixed in 1.4.0.)
