Short answer: Yes.

Longer answer: Subversion doesn't have branches; it has fast (O(1))
directory copies within the repository. So access control on pathnames
is sufficient to provide access control on branches. Right now,
Subversion doesn't have a full ACL system (that's a post-1.0 item), but
hook scripts or Apache access controls can take care of most needs.

See the handbook for more details, of course.
