Oh, sure, I just meant anybody who has sudo access. I don't use the
actual "root" account on my machine either.

Even sudo access probably isn't required. If your organization is
large enough that you need multiple system administrators, then your
head system administrator could set up a system account with which
your Subversion administrator could set up the repositories.
