I suppose you're talking about some GUI Subversion client. Which one?

This should already be possible. If your client doesn't support it,
you'll have to request the feature from its authors.

"Including or excluding changed lines from a file before commnt" is also
known as "using a text editor to modify the file". Subverison tracks
whole files, not individual lines. In fact the repository does not care
if the file contains text or not.

They're useful, and they exist ...
