No. If you look at the table at the beginning of chapter 6, it
explicitly says so.

If you use svn:// or svn+ssh://, then at best you can get fine-grained
*write* control by using a pre-commit hook script like
commit-access-control.pl or svnperms.py. But there's no fine-grained
read control.

It's on the "would be nice someday" list, but I don't think anyone's
working on it or has any plans to do it soon.
