It's not possible. When mod_dav_svn sees the SVNParentPath directive,
it just mindlessly appends the component immediately following the
<Location> to the SVNParentPath, and tries to open a repository there.
There's no recursion going on.

Maybe this mindlessness can be extended, so that if appending the 1st
component doesn't work, it tries appending the 2nd component, and so
on. I'd ask on the dev@ list, to see if there are any problems or
objections to such a feature. Definitely do that before filing an
enhancement request in the issue tracker.

(AFAIK, you're the first person to ever ask for such a thing. I've
been reading this list for over four years.)
