security and file permissions

Hi svn users,

I want to establish per-directory read-write access. I can
do this as per ch. 6 of the documentation. But I am running
everything on an svn+ssh basis, with the umask = 002 so
that every file in db/revs has permissions 664. Doesn't this
mean that any user with group r/w permissions can in
principle reconstruct everything in the repository, just by
grabbing all the files in db/revs?

What does it take to set up an svn repository where this
``loophole'' is closed and sensitive data is reasonably well
protected? Can anyone point me to a how-to document
or an example?

I apologize for a previous version of this message without
a descriptive subject header.
