The problem is that 'svn ls' expects that it is speaking directly to a
repository, in that it would only expect a single UUID, whereas
SVNListParentPath synthesizes a webpage, but it doesn't have to deal with the
fact that the child folders are different repos with different UUID's. It would
also be, IMNSHO, a very bad thing that 'svn ls' would show you something that
you couldn't then use the same URL with 'svn co'...

Actually, I could have sworn that someone already had done this, but I couldn't
find it in the Book or CHANGES file, and I was too tired to look at the source code.

None of this changes the fact that there is no way to "register" the
repositories present on a box, hence there is no way to iterate over such a
list, which is what the OP wants...
