AuthzSVNAccessFile question

I've a question regarding the user access management using Apache
and the AuthzSVNAccessFile access.conf.

Given the following sample repos structure 'sample':

I want a user 'foo' to fully access the folder trunk/b/ but not to all
other directories.
I've seen that the user also needs access to the trunk/ folder,
otherwise he cannot access the subfolder trunk/b/.

The problem is then he also has access to trunk/a and trunk/c due to the
recursive configuration behavior.
I can switch off access to this folders explicitly by doing so:

foo = r

foo = rw

foo =

foo =

foo =

foo =

But this is realy hard to maintain, especially when I'm adding new
folders I've to keep the acces.conf uptodate.

Is there a better solution for doing that?
