Re: variables in AuthzSVNAccessFile - a shortcut?

So far as I know, there are no variables in the file. If you've got any
needs that lead to wanting "variables" (other than the already supported
groups), then perhaps you want to generate the file? That's an approach we
take at my company.

If you take the approach of generating the file, then I don't think there
are any per-request variables that matter.

As for your specific idea, it looks like you want to have "per-user"
folders in repositories. Since those folders aren't created by magic,
perhaps you want to reserve their creation to someone like an
administrator, and catch their creation in a post-commit script, and
regenerate your access file?
