There are two strategies that we use to filter the repository for our users:

1) Define modules in the 'modules' file so that they can easily check out 
portions of the tree that pertain to them

2) Use LockDir and directory permissions to limit who can check in changes to 
certain, protected portions of the tree.

There is also the optional 'readers' and 'writers' admin files that can define 
who can read or write to the repository.

If that isn't enough and more separation is required, then consider splitting 
up the repository into separate repositories.
