Hi Mark,

I think this problem is out of scope for Subversion.

On Unix-ish systems, Subversion supports the executable flag. On
all operating systems, Subversion sets a file read-only if the file has
the 'svn:needs-lock' property set.

Tweaking file/dir permissions, setting ACLs, and other OS-specific
features should be handled by deployment tools or sysadmin
automation (e.g., cfengine).

Regards,
Steve
