Restricting read access to one file

Dear list,

I asked this question a couple of weeks ago and didn't get an answer, so
I'll try again.

I'm using svn with apache2. I've set up read access to the world via the
webserver (accessing http://foo.bar.com/svn with a browser), using
apache2's dav_svn.authz file. Like this:

[/]
* = r

The problem is, that one file contains secret information in plain text,
and this file reoccurs in all branches and tags throughout the repository.

My question is: is there any way of restricting read access to one
particular file, regardless of it's location in the repository? Maybe
something like:

[secret.file]
* =

or

[*/secret.file]
* =

I've tried these options with no success, but is there some other way of
doing it?

Regards,
   Fredrik Boström
