We've got most of our projects in the one repository. The only reason
we've got multiple repositories is for vastly different areas - ie we
have a repository for software development, and another that houses our
server configuration files (eg the contents of /etc)

Other than that I see no compelling reason why we would want to create
seperate repositories for different projects.
On the other hand, the downside I see to having a project per repository
is that creating a new project then requires an admin to login to the
svn server and do "svnadmin create", and any other admin tasks involved
in setting up the repository, like setting file permissions, setting up
Apache or ssh.
If the projects are in the one repository, a new project just requires
an svn mkdir, and that can be done by a developer rather than an admin.
