Assuming you have multiple repositories served with SVNParentPath:

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName www.example.com
        DocumentRoot /path/to/docroot
        <Location /svn>
                DAV svn
                SVNParentPath /path/to/repositories
        </Location>
</VirtualHost>

You simply add "SVNListParentPath on":

<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerName www.example.com
        DocumentRoot /path/to/docroot
        <Location /svn>
                DAV svn
                SVNParentPath /path/to/repositories
                SVNListParentPath on
        </Location>
</VirtualHost>

You need at least Subversion 1.3.0 for this to work.

As for security, if you're relying on your repositories being secure
by virtue of nobody knowing what they're called, then that's not very
secure to begin with. Assuming you have your repositories set up to
allow access to only authorizet people, then there should be no
problem listing the names of the repositories.
