Damn, that's it :-S Is it worth asking on the SVN lists how hard this would be 
to implement? I mean, we have the svn:ignore property, and we have the 
svn:eol-style property, what we want is a combination of those two, how hard can 
it be? <0.5 wink>

Yep, the above is what I do. I suppose it's still one step up from CVS where you 
have to specify the binary-ness of each file you upload rather than being able 
to put a mapping i na config file...
