would do your svn checkin for you a bit overwrought?  Is it so hard to run
the template and then do svn add?  The easiest features to support are the
features you don't have, and with a feature like this it's going to be
especially hard to get right because different users are going to have
different expectations.  I would, for example, consider anything that tried
to check in .egg-info to be broken.  I would argue that maybe the right
choice is to drop this feature altogether and assume users can handle their
own source control.
