svnserve only knows there is a repository when it goes to the requested
path and checks for the special repos files. There is no concept such
as ParentPath for svnserve, since it is specifically designed so that it
doesn't have to run resident (it can be started via [x]inetd or ssh
invocation under *nux). Since you've exposed the fact that you are
running Windows, you are likely to always be running svnserve as a
service, so that distinction doesn't apply.

There is no such thing as "all repositories" since svnserve specifically
allows you to access repositories *anywhere* in the filesystem, not just
under some given directory. As I tried to indicate earlier, the only
configuration available to svnserve is the conf directory inside the
actual repositories themselves. The Apache server has an external
config file, which is why SVNParentPath is possible.
