Suggestion to enhance svnserve-section of the subversion book

I ran into a problem when I set up a new repository and forgot to set the "realm" in the
svnserve.conf file.
The default of this variable (using the path as a realm), leads to an annoying behaviour
of the client, which asks for authentification frequently (the path changes and so does
the "realm").
But if I was very deep in the checked out directory tree no more authentification was
needed (because the realm is truncated after 49 characters).

So, in my opinion the subversion book should point out, that the "realm" should be set
to an usefull value (or the default of this variable should be changed).

Best regards, Karsten.
