Just for reference, under Unix, you can still search a directory which
isn't readable. So if .svn/auth were mode 711, the world couldn't ls
it, but they could read files inside it as long as they had read
permission on those files.

It's rare for the x and r bits to have different values on a directory,
though, so I imagine that there's no problem here. I'm just pointing
out that it's the "x" bit which matters, not the "r" bit.
