Actually, it does pretty much exactly what you want. It disables the
extra path-based checks that Subversion does. Operations like checkout
and commit already hit those paths, so all of the checks still occur and
you still get enforcement of things like making paths read-only, and
certain paths not-readable. What you lose, is that operations like svn
log can potentially show log entries for items the user is not authorized
to see. But even then, only if the user run's log on say the root of the
repository.
