Using the file:// access protocol, I don't believe so. If you serve
via Apache2, (or, if you have svn 1.3, with svnserv), you can use the
"authz" file for per-directory access control.
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch06s04.html#svn-ch-6-sect-4.4.2 -
This document is written for the Apache2 method, but from what I
recall seeing here the file format is the same when using svnserve;
someone more versed in 1.3 can fill in the details for pointing
svnserv at the config file.
