http://filext.com/file-extension/CPP shows several options:

application/x-cplusplus (probably not what you want, as SVN may treat
that as binary, not text)
text/anytext (I've never heard of "anytext" before)
text/plain (you've already addressed this)
text/x-c src (not sure about spaces in mime-types)
text/x-C++; text/x-c++src
text/x-c++src

text/x-c++src or maybe text/x-cplusplus-src?

For reference, Java sources typically are text/x-java-source from what
I've seen.
