Fine-grained access control as in WebDAV with svn://

maybe this should better go to the development list; however:

For svn:// access, I want fine-grained access control (on a per-file
basis) like WebDAV does.
[Maybe the repository could even hide files the user has no access to.]
Is this possible?

WebDAV works as intended, but svnserve ignores the WebDAV users and access
rights files.
conf/svnserveconf does not seem to have a setting to specify the access
rights file, and the format of the password database is different from
the one used with WebDAV, so I think these won't work together out of the

Google did not turn up anything useful.

I looked into the hooks to implement this myself, but even if there were
hooks for check out, this would feel like a quick and dirty hack.

Is someone already working on such a feature?
A quick look at the task list did not turn out anything in that direction.

Any other comments on my problem?
