Ignore on commit

Hi all,

I'm a relatively new subversion user and I like almost everything about it.
However, there is one very annoying shortcoming, and I would like to discuss
this issue.

I've got a couple of files in my project that get modified by users with no
intention of commiting these changes to the repository. In particular, the
project definition files I'm using contain checksums that use information
about the modification time of the source files, so every user has a
different version of this file. However, the file must still be revision
controlled.

Has anyone discussed having an 'ignore' feature for versioned files, so that
these files would only be committed when explicitly selected to be
committed, and not continually be flagged as 'modified'? I found a few
threads asking about this, but haven't seen any productive discussion about
it. Someone once suggested using a file 'template', but this seems like a
clumsy workaround rather than a solution. I'd be willing to try my hand at
developing such a feature if I knew it would be well-received by the
subversion community. Does anyone have any strong feelings against such a
feature?

Thanks,
Drew
