I'm confused by the above statement. It was a few months ago that I was
experimenting with Apache, svn, and access control, but I recall being
able to limit access to particular subdirs of a given repository using
Apache's LocationMatch directive along with BasicAuth primitives.

Indeed, this led me to the same question of "what am I missing" w.r.t.
what mod_authz_svn provides that can't be done in plain apache.

a bit baffled,
