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.

svn:ignore is not useless; it works fine, but doesn't have the feature you're looking for.

However, you can set "*.o" in your global-ignores in your Subversion config file; in fact it should already be there unless you've changed it.
