I too would like to add a measure of support/request for such a feature.
It would make supporting large numbers of repositories with various
administrative controls much more scalable.

It may also help with other performance issues for when the access file
starts getting large (200+ developers in some projects, about 30 different
projects, each with release manager for write access to release tags,
developers with write access to trunk and branches or only to specific
branches, etc. The size of the file has almost gotten out of control.

I have built various administrative tools for various clients. Plus I
have the tool that is part of Insurrection (still does not do fine-grained
path access control...) Having a file per repository could simplify many
of the issues I have had in the various solutions - but for now I have
solutions that work so if this is too complex/hard to provide, I can live
without for now.

PS - if not supporting this concept directly within mod_auth_svn, how
about adding an include directive to the authentication file. This way
it could be "simulated" from a relatively static authentication file
that includes each of the repository files. (Albeit I would think that
just supporting the per-repository file would be almost as easy.)
