Even more food for thought: If done so, mod_perl helps a lot to
simplify the task of 'maintaining' 'multiple' <Locaction> entries:

<Perl >

my $svnbase = '/data/svn/repository';

opendir(DIR, $svnbase)
  or die "Unable to open SVN repository base '$svnbase'\n";

while (my $project = readdir(DIR)) {
  next unless $project =~ /^[[:alnum:]_\-]+$/;
  $Location{"/repository/$project"} = {
    DAV => 'svn',
    SVNPath => "$svnbase/$project",

    AuthType => 'Basic',
    AuthName => "Subversion repository for project $project",
    LimitExcept => {
        Require => "group $project-committers",
