The better way to do this is to *not* use LimitExcept at all, but
instead to (1) unconditionally 'Require valid-user', (2) put a
'satisfy any' next to it, (3) unconditionally use SVNAuthzAccessfile,
and (4) put a nice '* = r' on the root directory of your authz file.
See example 6.3 in the svnbook.
