This will not do what you want, because svn doesn't always use URLs that
begin with /private to access/modify files under /private in the
repository. (However this will obviously work for pure GET requests, so
you can still prevent a part of your repos from being publicly
web-browseable by configuring the authorization for GET requests only,
via the <Limit> apache directive.)

No history between repos, yes, unless you do a dump and a load, which
begins to be hackish, does it.

If you want to control write access to a subdirectory, a hook is the
way to go.
