If you just want multiple users on the machine to be able to set up and
use private SVN repositories (e.g. in their home directories) then you
could get them to use ra_local. If they need to access them remotely,
you could get them to use ra_svn over SSH.

If multiple users need to access the same repository, then it obviously
gets more complicated. You haven't really described _what_ you want to
be able to do. You've only described more or less _how_ you think you
might do it.
