I would actually probably prefer to take it one step further and allow
wildcards in general in this list. As well as limiting file access, it
would be convenient to be able to have some permissions such as
/*/branch/ type permissions where the * would represent a project
(using the /projectA/trunk style structure).

Just a thought.
