Multiple users/repositories + Apache

I am a sysadmin in a university department with several hundred users. I
want to be able to create separate http-enabled repositories for them on
the fly without needing to restart apache. Something like this:


Obviously I don't want to add several hundred Location directives to
httpd.conf to specify the SVNParentPath for each user.

What I've managed to do so far is setup the following:


Access to each repos is controlled per user by mod_authz_svn. However,
this requires all repository authorizations to be configured in a single
AuthzSVNAccessFile and if several users (eg. in a class) try to
create/update their repository access config at the same time, we get file
locking issues on that file.

Is there any other way to make this work? Any advice warmly appreciated.
