Nitin, are you aware that local (`ra_local') access control is
ultimately governed by OS file permissions? Even if Subversion had
ACLs, they would only be secure over ra_local with a friendly client.
Anyone could bypass the access control with a little ingenuity.

There's really no way around this problem, if the client is on the
same machine as the repository.
