My thoughts were similar. From Blair's comments in STATUS, it seems
like a major incentive here is to not require parsing config on every
svnserve access. I'm not sure if this optimization saves much, but
perhaps the best way to handle this is to make a global config file
which is overridden by per-repo files, and a new global-only
configuration option "ignore-repository-configuration"?
