Wildcard in authorization path (dav_svn.authz)

Hi list,

I'm using svn with apache2 and defining authorization in the
dav_svn.authz file. I'm wondering if there's any way of using wildcards
in the [/path/to/somewhere] line.

I'm trying to block read access to one particular file that reappears in
many locations in the repository.

I'd like to write something like

<snip>
[secret_file]
* =
</snip>

or alternatively

<snip>
[/**/secret_file]
* =
</snip>

or something similar, but I haven't got it working.

So, is it possible to somehow use wildcards in these paths or otherwise
achieve what I'm trying to do?

Thankful for any help or pointers to existing docs on the subject.

Regards,
  Fredrik Boström
