A slightly different way:

Suppose you access your p, q and r repositories through /repo:

  <Location /repo>
    DAV svn
    SVNParentPath "/my/repos" # Or whatever

  <Directory "/svn">
    AllowOverride FileInfo
    Options +Indexes

And, in the svn directory, an .htaccess with:

  RedirectPermanent /svn/webapps/p http://my-server/repo/p
  RedirectPermanent /svn/webapps/q http://my-server/repo/q
  RedirectPermanent /svn/administrative/q http://my-server/repo/r

This way, you can navigate /svn with autoindexing, and when clicking on
the link for p, q or r, you are directed to the mod_dav_svn-served path.

It is not exactly what you're asking, if I understand you, because:

 - /svn/webapps/(p,q) is not the same as /repo/(p,q)
   I'm not sure if that's posible, although I imagine it is, with
   mod_rewrite trickery.

 - When clicking on p, the user can see in the address bar that he's
   been redirected (he was navigating /svn/webapps and suddenly he's in

Still, maybe that's acceptable for you.
