For now, you can just wrap svnserve. I have the following
.subversion/servers:

[groups]
localhost=localhost
pretzelnet=pretzelnet.org

[localhost]
svn-tunnel-agent=svnlocalhost

[pretzelnet]
svn-tunnel-agent=ssh

And the following scripts in /usr/local/bin:

svnserve:
#! /bin/sh
umask 002
exec svnserve.real "$@"

svnlocalhost:
#! /bin/sh
shift
exec "$@"

With ra_svn, you never need ra_local. I suspect that you also
get better performance using ra_svn locally than ra_local, due to
multi-processing. I even seem to remember someone posting
benchmarks once confirming that suspicion.

This is the same answer i gave last time this question came up.

One thing i'd like to change is making svn-tunnel-agent take a
format string; then the svnlocalhost hack will not be necessary.

Once svnserve has a config file (read from
${sysconfdir}/subversion when run as a server and from
~/.subversion when run via tunnel), we can add a umask option to
it. That is another change i plan to make.
