This sounds a *bit* like a Wiki (see http://subwiki.tigris.org/).

Mapping from ".../" -> ".../index.html" (if it exists) is done by
mod_dir. I don't think there is a way for mod_dir to check if there is
an index.html file in the repository and map to it, so you would have to
copy some of the code out of mod_dir.c and put it in mod_dav_svn.c.

A less C-intensive thing you could do is use mod_rewrite to translate to
do ".../" -> ".../index.html" just using directives. I'm pretty sure
this is possible (disclaimer: I have never successfully used
mod_rewrite), but it does assume that all directories will have
appropriate index.html files.

Just some ideas for you,
