Administering SVN Repositories

I've setup Subversion (utilizing Apache on Windows) for my company and
started adding repositories. I've set things up so that each department
has a directory, with repositories (projects) setup beneath that.
Everything was going great, until someone requested a bunch of
sub-directories with the repositories being buried within that directory
structure, not at the top level. That brought on a few questions...

Can you even do that using Subversion? I cannot seem to find a way to
configure Apache to allow it.

These users are former CVS and PVCS users, so they are used to revision
numbers on a per archive basis. They fear making the repository at the
top level and having several projects beneath that will lead to a huge
revision number and make it impossible to rollback to a specific "good"
version of the code should something go wrong. How do you mitigated that
risk? I would assume by using tags? Any other ideas?
