I may have missed something in the past, too, but what I do is run
a Perl (or Python) script with the respective file pattern set over the
working copy, writing the appropriate svn commandline for each hit
into a batch file, then (after checking everything looks all right) run
the latter and proceed with commit as usual.

I suppose with the Perl (or Python) bindings this could be done
more elegantly and natively, but so far this was sufficient for me.
Contact me offlist if you want the script as a starter (nothing
special about it).
