User File Access from Mysql DB...

i'm considering Subversion as a reopistory, but i need the ability to
implement the SVN system in a workflow kind of application. this requires
that as a file goes from one part of the process to another, the user
assigned to that part of the process will have access to only the files in
that part of the process...

i also need to accommodate the fact that users can/might be switched to
different parts of the process.

i've considered keeping all this information in a mysql db, and then somehow
writing out the subversion user access file whenever a change is made to the
overall access system... this seems to be a good chunk of development, and
i'm not sure if it's the right thing to do..

i've also considered the possibility of having to rewrite subversion to have
it get the user file access rights information from a database.. but i'm not
sure if this is the best approach...

any thoughts/ideas/comments from people who are really familiar with
subversion? has anyone else run into this kind of need...

the issue basically boils down to how you can use subversion in a system
where the users and files are dynamically changing...
