Sounds like branching.
1. create a dir called "submitted_by_peons"
2. Allow anonymous read/write to the submitted_by_peons tree
3. Peons create a proper sub-branch under "submitted_by_peons" for their submissions
4. Maintainers review the submissions
5. Maintainers merge worthy submissions to trunk

Pros: svn already supports this
Cons: enforcing "proper" sub-branch creation by peons
Assumptions: you have a bug/issue tracker to facilitate communication and tracking of submitted patches
