TortoiseSVN include instead of exclude extensions

Is it possible to set TortoiseSVN to only include certain extensions instead of excluding?  We want to only include about 15 file types (asp, html, css, js, jpg, etc) and it would be much easier to create an include list than an exclude list.

Such a feature is not available in Subversion and therefore I presume not in TortoiseSVN.

I had a quick look in the Subversion Issue List [1] and came across a patch that someone created [2] to allow negations in the svn:ignore list (e.g. "do not ignore *.jpg").  Unfortunately it appears that this patch has not been applied.

Sorry.
