Just to inject a little sanity here: creating a SVNParentPath-like
feature in svnserve would be optional, just like the mod_dav_svn
version. If you don't want to enumerate the individual repositories
under the parent directory, you don't enable that option.

One problem from the standpoint of doing this with svnserve is that
there isn't a single configuration file for svnserve to consult, like
there is when running under Apache (each repository has its own). You
could certainly add a commandline option to svnserve to trigger this
behavior, but there are going to be people who want to password-protect
even the listing of the repositories. I suppose that could be dealt
with by having a svnserve.conf file located in the root directory with
some appropriate stanzas.

FWIW, I would like to have this feature available. I use a tunneled svn
session to what are actually SVK repositories (Subversion plus custom
properties) so I can have all of my config files and applications in a
central location and check out copies on multiple servers. I prefer to
use seperate repositories since it makes it really easy to mirror some
remote project, make local changes, etc. Then later I can decide I'm
not using that software anymore and just delete the repository (without
needing to have the history around any more).
