SVN and windows file permissions

Hey guys,

I'm trying to move our web project into a subversion repository. I
already created a new repository and imported everything from the live
folder 'wwwroot'. I want to set up a system like that suggested by
this page:
http://subversion.tigris.org/faq.html#website-auto-update

My question is; will subversion maintain the security permissions on
the files from the live directory? I'm using IIS on Windows server
2003 and it's important that it keeps the same permissions because
otherwise the website breaks.

If subversion doesn't keep the permissions perhaps a workaround could
be to have the post-commit script also reset the proper permissions to
the files since I know what permissions I always want them to have.
(Does anyone know how to pragmatically set permissions in windows
server 2003? I can't even think of a good search phrase for that!)

Thanks in advance,

Greg
