I am using a single file where is listed owners and permissions
and that file is also versioned by SVN. Much more elegant solution
would be to use ASVN
<http://svn.collab.net//repos/svn/trunk/contrib/client-side/asvn>

I started this before there was any ASVN, and I haven't needed so
often to restore files, so this single file based system has worked so
far well enough.

BR, Jani
