Two apache modules could easy handle the same public url. You just to
register handler hook before mod_dav_svn and then return DECLINED if
url is not accepted. For example if it doesn't have cmd=something in
args. And return OK in other cases. mod_svn_view module uses this
approach for implementing Subversion web interface on the same URLs as
Subversion.
