Ignoring symlinks - a feature request?

Our setup for working checkouts involves creating a bunch of symlinks
dependent on which client's special configuration we're developing,
which interfere with repository inspection and must never be actually
committed. The number of these symlinks is large and even if it weren't
they cannot be added to svn:ignore since different configurations have
differently linked files. Judging from Google results I'm not the first
one who's interested in a feature for svn to ignore symlinks, but it
doesn't seem possible currently. Is there a place I can submit a feature
request for future versions?

(a possibly lousy idea how to do it generically: introduce a svnignore
feature that bars files by MIME types, and make the symlink a MIME type).
