Feature request 'svn ignore'

I hope this is the right place for a feature request. I'm working on a
ruby on rails project, using subversion as our version control system.
Each developer checks out a working copy of the project and sets up
their own lighttpd and mysql servers on their development machine.
Several config files are in the repository and its very useful for the
developers to get copies of these files when they check out their
working copy. However, it would be nice for developers to be able to
customize these config files to work with their system. If the
developers do this, the modified config files get committed whenever
the developer commits their next revision. Then when another developer
goes to update their working copy they get the new (customized) config
files and have to re-configure their config files. Enough of this
anecdote it would be nice to have a svn command to tell subversion to
"don't look at my changes". I purpose something similar to the
following command.

svn ignore <filename>

I know that svn propedit svn:ignore can do something similar for new
files that haven't been committed to the repository, but I'm looking
for a functionality that will work with files already in the
repository. As I mentioned above I am a developer and I would be
willing to volunteer my time to work on adding this feature.
