Error found, repository at <Location /> fails

So, I fixed my own problem, and I'm not sure if this is a bug or a design
feature. If it's the latter, a better error message is probably in order.

In apache2's httpd.conf, I had been doing my DAV svn and other configs in a
whole separate VirtualHost, inside <Location />. I did this because it was a
whole separate vhost, and I didn't see the need to add more stuff to the URL
than was necessary.

So, when importing by http, I was getting the error...

svn: Apache got a malformed URI
The specified URI does not refer to this repository, so it is unusable.

I tried a bunch of things, but what made it work was when I changed the
location to <Location /svn>, and it magically started working.

So, apparently you can't mount svn on /, as seen in both 2918 and 2977

If someone calls this a bug, I'll log it as such. If someone tells me it's a
design feature, I'll open a clearer error message as a bug :)
