svn authz users strategies

From: Jehan PROCACCIA <Jehan.Procaccia_at_int-evry.fr>

I am trying to fine grained acces controls, here's a simple scenario, my
authz file (called from svnserve.conf) contain that:
[svn@share /var/www/svnweb/repos/s2ia/conf]
$ cat authz
s2ia = procacci,tutu
@s2ia = r
procacci = rw
tutu =
tutu = rw
procacci =

I want both users procacci and tutu to have full access to their
personnal "subdirectory" in the s2ia repository, but no rights to others
It seems to work, exept that now there's a only a Read acces to / for
the group , tutu is unable to perform it's initial import:

[tutu@anaconda ~]
$svn import ./tutu -m "import initial tutu"
svn: Access denied

I don't want to set rw on / because I don't want users to "garbage" the
repository with /xxx "subdirectories" anywhere, I want them to be able
to write only below their username (/login). You might says that I could
create a repository for each and every users, but I don't want to manage
hundreds of repository config :-( .
Any advice ?

PS: by the way, I also tried to set "absolute" path in authz file, like
[s2ia:/procacci] procacci = rw, but then I always get authorization
refused for every svn command as user procacci :-( ! why I can't set the
repository in front of the access rule ?
