New attempt follows:

Proposed Log message:
    Allow browser navigation from repository top to repository list
    when SVNListParentPath is on.

Reproduction recipe.
 - Go with your browser (IE or any other) to the top of any svn repository
 where SVNListParentPath is set to on, e.g.:
 - Note that the super-directory (/plugins/) is browsable as well, but
 you cannot navigate to it from here.
 - I would expect that the first entry of the list is a hyperlinked "..",
 which would navigate to its super-directory.

 I checked this with the trunk, and the buglet is still there.

 Rationale: in repos.c, the decision whether to include the link or not
 is based on two things:
 - If repos_path is of length 1 (so it must be "/"), then skip this step
 - If the collection is of type DAV_SVN_RESTYPE_PARENTPATH_COLLECTION
   (the highest browsable directory), then skip this step too.

 This can be fixed by ignoring the first condition when SVNListParentPath is on.
 Unfortunately I don't have an environment set up to build mod_dav_svn to test
 this, but I'm pretty confident that this fix will work (for what's worth).

 Can I file an issue for this? See patch below.

 Here is the patch against svn trunk in unified diff (I re-ordered it
a little because
 dav_svn__get_list_parentpath_flag() is a more expensive test, so it should
 be done last):
