Yes. For example, you can configure Apache to only allow users in the
svn-project1 LDAP group to access the repository project1, and users
in the svn-project2 LDAP group to access the repository project2, and
so on.

That means you will have to;
1) Reconfigure Apache for each new project (*)
2) Use your preferred LDAP solution to manage users, their passwords
and groups.

If you're already using LDAP, then 2) becomes relatively simply. You
just need to sort out their groups.

(*) I don't think LDAP groups can be passed down to the
AuthzSVNAccessFile, but I'm happy to be corrected. If you could, then
you could get away with just editing AuthzSVNAccessFile if you're
using a single repository solution.
