ACK.
Just an addition to the book: Access is granted (or denied) to objects,
not only to directories, as the book states.
So, if we have

-------8<-----
[calc:/branches/calc/bug-142]
harry = rw
sally = r

[calc:/branches/calc/bug-142/secret]
harry =
-------8<-----

we could expand this example to

-------8<-----
[calc:/branches/calc/bug-142]
harry = rw
sally = r

[calc:/branches/calc/bug-142/secret]
harry =

[calc:/branches/calc/bug-142/secret/not-so-secret.txt]
harry = r
-------8<-----

In this case, harry would have access to the file not-so-secret.txt via
a web browser.
Of course, since checking out single files is currently not supported by
subversion, harry cannot check out the file with his subversion client.
