As mentioned, I currently just use "add -p" to stage everything but
the designated sections. It's what made my shift from "what the
heck is this annoying Index thing" to "oh, now I can't go back to
using other [DC]VCS tools without this". It's also not overly
onerous on a case-by-case basis but after several hundred checkins,
it's gotten a tad tedious (the alternative is forgetting and then
having the pointless change show up in the revision history that
gets pushed to SVN).

However, I was hoping for some method of marking the file (or
perhaps an add/commit hook) that would allow me to automatically
ignore a section of code every time without manual intervention.
