Sure. Just checkout subdirectories as you need them, as individual,
non-nested working copies.

Yes, apache and mod_authz_svn is currently the only way to have
per-directory permissions. Chapter 6 explains mod_authz_svn.

No, that is not a problem. HTTP is a stateless protocol. Every time
the client makes a request, the authorization file is parsed. So you
can change the permissions over and over without having to restart apache.
