You don't need separate instances of Subversion or different port
numbers. It's no problem to run any number of repositories through a
single Subversion server, be it served through svnserve or apache2.
Everything is just handled by URLs. The apache2 SVNParentPath
directive is relevant here and is used if you want to serve up a
number of repositories which all live in the same server-side directory.
