property based permissions?

Hi,

Subversion already allows to configure access permissions on files
using mod_authz, which works just fine, but requires administrator
access.

What I'm looking for are "user-level" permissions which are specified
inside file properties, like:
   svn propset svn:readacl "donald,mickey" .

Now I think it wouldn't necessarily be required to implement that in
the Subversion core (is anything like this planned for Svn 2.x?), but
could be done as a post-commit script which runs a sequence like that:
- on-commit:
   process all changed files
   update a mod_authz configuration file
Of course the script would need to take into account whether the user
is allowed to change a permission property ;-)

Did someone attempt to do something like this? If so, I would like to
know ;-)

best regards,
   Helge
