Actually, I think there are ways of creating per-directory access
control. See here:
With Apache-based https access, such access control is relatively
straightforward, it appears. With the standalone svn server over ssh,
one needs to use "commit hook scripts" to limit access. But I think it
is possible (admitting that I have not tried to do this...).
