You don't *have* to write anything. A fully functional and configurable
Python script (svnaccess.py) to help you set these permissions already
comes packaged with (the source distribution of) SVN and it's a one-line
install to wire it up into the pre-commit hook for your repository.

I support SVN for a few hundred end-users and only for a very small
number of repositories do we have any restrictions on anything other
than having to be an authenticated user. Developers know not to touch
anything under /tags and less technical folk usually only go where
they're explicitly told for fear of "breaking something". Education and
threats of bodily harm go a long way ;)

Either way it serves my purpose, and if I ever do need to clamp down, I
can do so in under an hour. Minor inconvenience IMHO.

Cheers
Rob
