I have not worked with Tomcat in production, but when I have used
WebSphere and Apache together, the way we did it all of our web apps
always had a context root and that is how Apache knew which requests
to hand to WebSphere for processing. WebSphere already protects those
folders, so they cannot be accessed directly. I know that Tomcat does
the same, but perhaps not in this sort of setup.

Anyway, in our case, since the requests for WebSphere have one context
root, and the requests for Subversion have a different one, there is
never any issue in the requests being handled by the wrong server.
