SVNParentPath seemed to be the only way to write a single block in
the Apache configuration file that affected multiple repositories. So
I had done it that way. Then I had wanted to use mod_rewrite rules to
fix up the URLs so that at least on the surface it looked like the
repositories were still in each user's space (example.org/~rschmidt/
svn and so on). This definitely didn't work; Subversion kept throwing
obscure errors. I don't remember them exactly but you should be able
to reproduce it if you want to. It sure felt like a Subversion bug to
me but at that point I just gave up and lived with the crummier URLs.
