I have a public Subversion repository that is used by people that
don't have the time or the inclination to rebuild Subversion when
something like this happens, and I'm concerned about a client doing
something similar to my repository.

Is there anyway for the me to have my Subversion server validate
the Subversion client version number?

This would be a good thing to have, and would be another reason to
have the Subversion revision number compiled into the client in
addition to the 0.XX.Y style revision number.

The version check would occur all but the GET, OPTIONS, PROPFIND,
REPORT methods, because you'd still like to have people check out
the repository with an older client.

I think this would have to be something the server does and not
something you'd check in Apache, because if you did this in Apache,
svnserve would not be protected.

When the client accesses a server with svn://, does it send it's
version along?
