I think you're imagining that the svn repository is a real set of
files that you tweak the permissions on. You don't. The repository
filesystem is completely imaginary, existing only within a bunch of db
files. You make sure the httpd-process has full read/write permission
to the repository db files, and you're done, no more permission

To add or remove users, just add or remove lines from the user-file
you tell apache to authenticate against. No need to restart apache.

To add a new repository, just create a new one. If it's within a
SVNParentPath <Location>, you don't need to restart apache either.
