The primary reason I chose not to place the access control in the
password file was so that the password file could be shared between
multiple repositories while still allowing access control to be
controlled per-repository.

After a quick perusal of the mod_authz_svn documentation, it seems that
this would be a fairly large change. At the moment the svnserve access
control system has no concept of per-path permissions. This in itself
seems like it would be a signficant amount of work to implement.
