mod_authz_svn and permissions

I've looked at the Subversion booked and searched the Internet for
solution to this with no luck.

I have a repository with a group that only has write privileges on
branches for all known paths in the repository. However, if a new
project is created in the repository with a set of tags, trunks, and
branches under it, this group cannot write to that directory until I add
the new project branch path to the authorization file. Being the
administrator that doesn't like to have to do everything all the time
for the users, my question is: Does the mod_authz_svn support
authorization files with regex patterns or wildcards for repository
paths?

Basically this might look like:

[therepo:/]
@thatgroup = rw
@thisgroup = r

[therepo:*/branches]
@thisgroup = rw

The purpose of this is to keep the team that uses that repository from
always coming back to me so the new projects don't have to be added to
the authorization file each time. If Subversion doesn't support this
kind of syntax with mod_authz_svn, do you think a feature request should
be made to do so?

Thanks,

Johnathan
