By design, Subversion repositories are completely independent of each
other. There is no global registry that lists all repositories on a
server, since they are technically speaking data, not applications.
This is a good thing (security wise), since there are many situations
where you don't want J. Random User to even _know_ about the presence of
a given repo.

Under both Apache and svnserve, an administrator may *choose* to group
repositories under a common containing directory (only a single layer,
however). Some Windows clients allow you to create profiles pointing at
multiple repos independently of each other, but it is a totally manual
