Michael -- I'm not sure I understand the problem you're trying to solve.

You know that mod_dav_svn provides a public API which examines any
incoming URL and gives you back (1) the repository's name, (2) the
path within the repository that the URL refers to... right?

Modules like mod_authz_svn (and marcus's new mod_authn_svn module)
depend on this API, since only mod_dav_svn knows how to interpret the
funky-looking opaque urls it generates and forces the svn client to
use. It alsos work on normal public urls as well. Maybe
Insurrection could use it too? Look at dav_svn_split_uri() in
