Yes, but each of these would have an own location or directory block in
httpd.conf. IMO browsing should be restricted to a single location at a
time. I doesn't make sense to try to collect all repositories from every
possible location.

In summary that means that the only way to present a list of available
repositories to the user is to use an external tool that gathers the
information. The only 'easy' svn internal solution could be achieved
with http:// and SvnParentPath.
