Thanks Nik - but with 1000's to 10's of 1000's of repositories, isn't a
configuration file - or a looped file a bit clunky? - Wouldn't it have
serious performance issues?

I'm still thinking I need something akin to SVNParentPath;

I've been thinking about using a <LocationMatch> directive and a variable
SVNPath inside -- but does apache allow you to use the results of the regex
match as in the following example? ... note the use of $1

    <LocationMatch /repositories/u([^/])+/>
      Options All
      DAV svn
      SVNPath "/mnt/data/users/$1/repo"
      AuthzSVNAccessFile "/mnt/data/users/$1/.authsvn"
