Making svn update/checkout ignore umask

It seems that SVN is honouring the umask when updating files. This means if
the user has a umask set and updates files in some public firm wide
directory, those files will now have a more restrictive permission setting.
We did not have this issue with CVS because it uses the repository file/dir

Is there some way to configure SVN so that the user's umask is not applied
when updating files? Can't we specify that files always have repository
permissions irrespective of umask settings.
