ACLs vs tags

I am facing some troubles with a "conflict" between ACLs vs. allowing
users to create tags.

User connect via dav_svn, the AuthzSVNAccessFile looks similar like this:

adminUsers = fred,wilma

foo = rw

* =
@adminUsers = rw

Now if the "foo" user wants to create a tag like this ...

svn copy https://svn.example.com/repos/restricted/project/trunk
https://svn.example.com/repos/restricted/project/tags/1.0 -m "creating
the 1.0 tag"

... I then get a "403 Forbidden" error, because the client tries to
access repos/:

[Wed Sep 23 09:42:37 2009] [error] [client] Access
denied: 'foo' PROPFIND repos:/

The only "workaround" I found so far is to make the entire repository
readable for the user.

So how can I allow user "foo" to create tags within the restricted
project without making the entire repository readable for him?
