How to prevent svnserver ssh users from breaking repo?

I like svnserve in that it operates completely independently from Apache.

However, I don't like the fact that my svnserver/ssh users must be given
enough permissions to the repository path on my server to the point where
they (the average user) could accidently (or even maliciously) alter or
delete some or all of the repository (and not just a working copy of the
repo) if they so desired. This would probably be an accidental (read: "fat
finger delete") kind of move.

How might I avoid this as a subversion admin?

I suspect this is a faq. Couldn't find an answer anywhere else.
