You are right - I just checked; what I was remembering was the
SVNParentPath approach, which means that authorisation is down one
level, in each named repository, rather than being just off /

But still it seems unfortunate that using http://svn.xxx.yyy/repo_name
isn't more flexible - it's a nice simple URL and easy to remember. And
we have no problems except that I think we possibly need a way to
control robots ....
