Okay, I'm starting to kick around ideas of what it would mean if we
introduce WebDAV ACLs into Subversion. This has nothing to do with
my earlier notion of client-side WC permissions. This is *only*
about server-enforced access-control to Subversion.

Certainly, this means major changes over in httpd-land (incl.
mod_dav), but I'm not scared of that. Realistically, I wonder if we
could contain all of the Subversion required changes to
mod_dav_svn/ra_dav. I'm beginning to think that's possible. The
core of the ACL support would simply be file properties - nothing
tricky there.

If you're interested and have a few minutes (!) to spare to take
a look, I'd welcome any feedback. -- justin
