I'm not sure about permissions in general, but you can have them executable:

svn propset svn:executable 1 <svn-controlled file>

I hadn't thought about this before your post. I've recently taken to using a
'new file' script which chmod's the file as 755 before doing 'svn add'. The
files added in this way stay executable when checked out elsewhere, while
those that have been chmod'd after being added don't.
