We're looking at adding policy support to a future version, where
administrators can have more control over the user's access on Review Board.
Today, we don't have that.
If you need to section things off today, you'll need to set up multiple
Review Board servers. Many companies have had success with this, though it
certainly depends on how much fine-grained control you're after.
