Yes, that's what I thought. Thanks for clarifying that.

The problem with that, for us, is that there's no way to enforce
server/repository/project side restrictions since there's no way to sync client

config files (other than manually). Though it appears that if local
~/.subversion/config is REMOVED svn will use /etc/subversion/config. Hopefully,
that will be enough for us.
