How to best manage authorization after tag/branch creation?

Hello all,

We've configured Apache to restrict access to certain directories on our trunk
(n.b. via AuthUserFile in httpd.conf). The problem is now I've created a tag
from our trunk and found that the permissions don't 'automatically' transfer
during creation of the tag. Obviously, this is because the AuthUserFile is a
text file and needs to be edited manually :). But, is there an admin tool to
help with this basic task to avoid accidentally providing full access to a tag
(or branch)? Hopefully, Subversion provides some type of 'smart branch/tag
creation' which can inherit permissions from the source directory. Please let
me know of the best way to do this.

Thanks,
Shaun
