No. As I explained the default should be 002 because that will stop the
majority of complaints. People expect subversion to work in a group
setting. That's the typical intended usage. However the default install
of subversion does not work in a group setting. You need to "fix" it
with a wrapper script.

To fix the problem, simply make the default what people expect. Install
the wrapper script by default. That's not saying that everybody must use
the defaults. If an admin needs more control then they can comment out
the umask or extend the wrapper script.

The current default is the problem. My recommendation is simply to
change the default.
