OK. I've already got Apache set up that way. I just figured there
would be an easier way to set this up, ala the way CVS is set up for
the Apache CVS archives with commit_check, commit_prep and the acl

I haven't tested this, but if you have a repository set up like

attempts a commit to 1 and 2, then it'll fail?
