Hee hee me too!

Here are a couple of thoughts -- I discovered by accident that Git
skips 'hidden' files (either .XXX or hidden attribute on win/stuff).

You can commit a hidden file with an explicit Add

You can hook scripts to git actions like a checkout, so the scripts
you have now could go there.

In some VC and CM packages there is a "no get" option for checkout.  I
also noticed with Git it doesn't overwrite read-only files unless you
'make it'.

... Between us we might come  up with enough small things to get a
gestalt idea!! :-)
