It is not possible to hide the existence of the unreadable directory.
'svn ls' will show it, so will an http GET on the parent directory
(which is what your web browser is doing).

However, it's impossible for anyone to read the *contents* of the
unreadable directory. 'svn checkout' the repository root, the
unreadable directory is skipped over.
