Access controll with svnserve

We're using svnserve for serving our repositories. It was clear to me
that the the possibilities for access control are quite limited, but I
would like to ask whether I got the things really right:
In Chapter 6 of the Suberversion book, section "Set access controls" it
is written:
"Notice that svnserve only understands blanket access control. A user
either has universal read/write acccess, universal read access, or no
This would be fine to me, I find however no possibility to define the
access level for each user - I just can define the access level for the
two user-groups "anon-access" and "auth-access". Am I missing something?
I know you can use Apache for more complex access control, but I prefer
the simple setup of svnserve. Are there any plans to add an access level
for each user or even control to specific paths within the repository?
