SvnServe - LocalService account permissions question

All... I posted the below on the Subversion users group, but didn't really get
much response, so I thought I would retry here as there tends to be more Windows

I've been running SvnServe 1.4.3 as a service on a local Windows 2003 box and I
have been wanting to switch the account it runs under to be "LocalService"...
I plan to do this when I upgrade to 1.4.4.
I dont think it is relevant to my questions, but we use TortoiseSVN (and SVN) as

I have questions about required account permissions.

I found some information in the following

This document states the following:
"Note that you would have to give the Local Service account appropriate rights
to both Subversion and your repositories, as well as any applications which are
used by hook scripts."

Does anyone have a quick summary of aforementioned "appropriate" rights required
for setup of the Local service account?

Does it require "Full Control" in the subversion repository directories? ... or
something a bit less?

Does it require "Read", "Read & Execute" and "List Folder contents" in the
Subversion program directories?... or something a bit less (or more).

Yes, I know I can guess and experiment, but it would be nice to hear from
someone in the know, who has already done this. Someone who knows the specific
"minimum" set of directory permissions required for this.
