This isn't a problem; you just imagine to be. Lots of subversion
newbies think that it matters, and it just doesn't. Here's a FAQ
about it:

Seriously, just try it out. When the global revision increases, it's
a meaningless thing.

If you're using svn://, then you can control per-directory write-
access via a pre-commit hook script. There's no way to control per-
directory read-access. If you're using http://, then mod_authz_svn
can control both read and write access.
