svn:ignore with recursive and non-recursive patterns

I have a need to define a number of svn:ignore patterns in my project.

Some are specific directories somewhere in my project tree. Others are
particular file types created by a build process such as *.o which may
be found in any number of directories.

However, the svn propset command only allows the recursive -R switch to
be applied to the entire set of values for the svn:ignore property.
Whereas what is needed is to be able to apply the recursive switch to
the VALUE(e.g. *.o), not the KEY (e.g. svn:ignore). Is there any way of
achieving this? There doesn't appear to be one. Yet without it,
svn:ignore is useless, or at least too cumbersome to be used well.
