Back to the question at hand. If your institution wished to allow peruser svn
repositories, and so had a LoadModele dav_svn in its httpd.conf file it MIGHT
be possible to set up a server with a .htaccess file somewhere in your
~/public_html directory. I don't know enough about apache configuration to
say for sure, but maybe gstein does.
