FWIW, if you use the above directive you still get 90% of the authz
functionality. The "security hole" is that someone can run svn log on say
the root of the repository (assuming they have read access to it) and see
log entries for areas they do not have access. They still cannot access
any of the content of those areas though, nor could they run svn log
directly against one of those areas.
