If I can expand a little on what Ben said, the important word in that sentence
is "currently" for your purposes. There is active work being done on a
repository ACL model which may be part of 1.1 (or at least 1.x, i.e. not 2.0).
There are a couple of more important features (locking/reserved checkout for
one), but I know that the ACL feature is up there in the priorities.

So, if you can use Apache and mod_authz_svn for now, you might be able to move
to a more flexible model as soon as possibly 1.1, when it comes out (which is
not scheduled AFAIK).
