I can think of three ways off the top of my head.

1. Use svn+ssh, put yourself in a group that has access to the all
repository folders but make each repository for a user owned by just
that user and the group you (but not they) are a member of.

2. Use mod_authz_svn with a block in the config file for each repository
and a user account for each user, then mention you in each repository
block, but individual users only in their own repository block.

3. Use Limit and/or LimitExcept in combination with LDAP auth.

I'd give more detail but it really depends on how you are using/plan to
use Subversion as a server. Does/will your Subversion server be served
by Apache or not?
