Global svnserve configuration files

I need to serve a large number of svn repositories (over 1,000) using
svnserve and would rather have single set of svnserve files (conf/authz,
conf/passwd and conf/svnserve.conf) than have each repository have
symlinks back to one global ones. Also, it would be a little faster to
load in that information once than to reparse it for each request.

Looking through the code, it doesn't look too bad if the main thread
were to read in all the config files and pass it down to the child
process or thread.

Couple of things:

1) I suggest using --conf /path/to/some/svnserve.conf as the command
line argument. Should we also use -c as a shortcut for --conf?

2) The realm uses the UUID of the repository, and due to thread race
conditions, maybe if you use --conf then you have to specify the realm
in the svnserve.conf file?
