Sorry, Daniel, I don't know a way to accomplish all those objectives. The only options Subversion provides are:
* SVNPath: host a single repository at a URL
There is no provision for using SVNParentPath with the repository name coming from the hostname, only from a directory component in the URL.
You cannot use mod_rewrite or similar to fake this. Subversion clients do not follow HTTP redirects.
The only way I know to accomplish the functionality you want is to define each subdomain as its own VirtualHost, either manually or via a script you write. You will have to restart Apache when making changes, though a graceful restart shouldn't impact you too much.
