That's not the case because there's no direct mapping between files
stored in Subversion by clients and the file system on the Subversion
server. Client files are not stored as files on the server. Therefore
Subversion's access control cannot rely on the server's file access
control mechanism.

Per directory access control is the reason why I chose "http:" over
"svn:" but with the release of Subversion 1.3 "svn:" will also support
per directory access control.
