Hmmm, you might be able to auto-mount your repos as an auto-versioning
repos via WebDAV and then create a working fsfs repos inside it. If it
doesn't work today, I imagine, based on mailing list reports by the
developers, that it would work without pretty easily on MacOS X when
Subversion 1.2 is released. And then you could mount that repos and
create another inside it. Repeat until the inefficiencies bring your
server to its knees.

I don't see how such a construction would be useful, but it's
interesting to think that it could work. (And it could be prevented
pretty easily too, if it were worth it, but I doubt it is.)

Of course, I don't think this is what the original poster meant at all.
  Mr. Hunter's comments are probably much useful to Mr. Kevin than my
own musings. :-)
