Not the /feature/ the /primitive/ by which I meant, a parameter to the
svn utility that twiddles that particular property directly, and which
would get listed when you invoke the "help" primitive with "svn help."

yes, you can set the svn:ignore property in a directory to include files.
What is lacking is "ignore" as a svn command-line primitive outside
of propset.  Which is why Luke's EDITOR-setting hack works.

is "primitive" weird jargon?
