There is not.  If your filesystem provides ACLs, you can use them; if
not, you're out of luck.

You should be able to do that by setting the ownership and permissions
on the directory.  It doesn't get tricky unless you want to restrict it
to more than one user.  In that case, you can use groups, but doing this
on more than a few directories with distinct groups of users can become
quite unwieldy.
