Bingo.

On my svn server, I have this script as /usr/local/bin/svnwrap:

#!/bin/sh
# Generic wrapper for svn commands to enforce correct umask
umask 002
cmdname=`basename $0`
/usr/bin/$cmdname "$@"

I also have these links in /usr/local/bin:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:38 svn -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svnversion -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svnshell -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svnserve -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svnlook -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svndumpfilter -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svnadmin -> svnwrap*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root staff 7 Sep 3 08:40 svn_load_dirs -> svnwrap*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root staff 174 Sep 3 11:25 svnwrap*

Getting all these wrapped ensures that any access, either via svn:,
svn+ssh:, or just local access doesn't screw up the permissions (we
don't use webdav.)
