Sure, you can set up a CGI program to browse the repository, like

Then independently, use a module like mod_authz_svn to prevent "read"
access to certain parts of the repository from certain users. This
will prevent 'svn checkout', or any other svn command that tries to
read the files.

The CGI script is unaffected by mod_authz_svn, since it's handling a
whole different set of URLs.
