Silly me. The answer is, quite obviously, in specifying glob patterns,
particularly one which excludes a file. With bash, the !(excluded) glob
pattern does just that. So, thanks to bash, the following command
excludes main.c++ from a commit:

$ svn commit -m "committing everything except main.c++" !(main.c++)

Once again, a little knowledge of the shell goes a long way.
