Yes, well.... :)

If the multiple ports and multiple instances of svnserve are the
concern, then an option is to use apache instead. Apache has always
been the more full-featured serving solution, and you can specify
different locations mapping to different parent directories like this:

<Location /location1>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /path/to/dir1
<Location /location2>
        DAV svn
        SVNParentPath /path/to/dir2

It has been suggested before that it would be interesting for the
SVNParentPath feature of mod_dav_svn within apache (and, similarly,
the -r option on svnserve) to support unlimited subdirectories within
the specified parent directory. Then you could have


And you could point SVNParentPath in apache (or the -r option of
svnserve) to the top /foo directory and it would let you access all
of these. But alas, this feature does not yet exist. It has come up
at least 3 times before that I can recall, so it may be time to make
an enhancement request ticket for it.
