Not really, no. You asked for a resource, and it wasn't there. Simple as
that, so it logs the error.

That said, you could add a header like 'X-SVN-Existence-Probe: yes' into the
stream, have mod_dav_svn recognize that, and avoid logging most of the
errors. However, Apache itself is still going to log the 404.

[ hmm. maybe not... we could always get mod_dav to generate an error
  response, which would include/exclude logging, but I'd rather not ]
