While the above would work for the trunk paths the user required this to
be enforced across copies (branches, tags) as well, at which point he
was directed to adjust his repository layout to support that or to make
the repository admins do their work.

Selective restrictions on paths that are sub-trees of the normal level
of working copies do not normally play well when using branching and
merging, especially when setting something to no access as a user would
have an incomplete view of the source tree. Path based authorization
does, however, work very well and is intended to being applied to
projects, branches and sub-modules.
