For now, you can get finer-grained authorization control by writing a
custom pre-commit hook script.

Just have the script use 'svnlook' to examine the pending transaction
and username. The script can grep for the paths that are being
changed, and decide if the user is allowed to change them or not. If
not, have the script exit non-zero, and the commit will be aborted.
