Ambiguity In AuthzSVNAccessFile Permissions

From: Williams, James P2 (N-USA) <james.p2.williams_at_lmco.com>

I'm unclear what directory permissions mean in my AuthzSVNAccessFile. For example,

   goober = rw
   * = r

   tuber = rw
   goober = r

who has permissions to create /trunk in this case? I want it to be goober, which is why I gave him rw in /. However, the read-only permissions he has in /trunk seem to also prevent his ability to create /trunk. Basically, I want him to be able to create the toplevel directories, like /trunk, but not edit their contents. Am I specifying it correctly? As written, the "svn mkdir" fails.
