No; we've pretty much let them lie, and probably will continue to do
so until after 1.0, since there's a whole protocol to design here.

If you'll be using ra_dav, then I'd recommend doing access control via
Apache, since it's there for free (I doubt that Greg Hudson wants to
add ACLs to ra_svn independently of some future core Subversion ACL
system, though I could be wrong there).

Note that true access control is impossible over ra_local, since the
controlling factor there is OS file permissions. All Subversion can
do in the ra_local case is make it more or less convenient to get at
the data.
