That's correct.

The easiest way to implement this would would be to run svnserve with
different paremeters (i.e. for setting the root) on each of the different
ports. svnserve itself wouldn't need to be modified or know handle more
than one root. (And, for example, if you used inetd, there wouldn't really
any additional static process overhead).
