Subversion 1.3: svnserve access control: distinction between create/delete/write access possible?

Is it possible to do the above with Subversion's 1.3 svnserve?

My idea is that I want to restrict access to subdirs below the "tags" subdir
in the following manner:

- allow a user to create and delete dirs below tags
- prevent a user from modifying contents below the newly created dir below
  tags (except for the initial creation)
- deletion of contents below the newly created dir should only be possible when
  the directory holding the contents is deleted as well.


- tags/TEST
  (user should be allowed to create and delete dir)

- tags/TEST/src
  (user should be allowed to create and add files to it (and all other subdirs
  below "TEST" and their files exactly once)
  (Deletion of subdirs/files below TEST should be OK when "TEST" itself is

(The aim is to enforce that tags are snapshots, and that these snapshots
remain immutable).

- Is this possible with the new svnserve?

- If not, can svnperms.py take care of such a scenario?

- If that's not the case and someone on this list has a hook script for
  something like this, I would certainly be interested ;-)

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
