svn doesn't have the equivalent of non-branch sticky tags in cvs (a
good thing IMHO). The downside of the "svn up -r" approach for your
problem is that a subsequent "svn up" will put you back to the current
unwanted version.

Another possibility is to merge in the old version:
svn merge -r HEAD:$REV $FILE

Now you can do updates without picking up the unwanted file, *but*
unlike a cvs sticky tag, you can commit the modified version to the
repository. This may or may not be what you want.
