You can also put them both on Apache, then there's not that much
confusion. That's how we do it: two Location blocks in Apache, both
backed by the same repository:
- http://svn.example.com/public_svn: the anonymously accessible one.
Goes over plain http, doesn't require authentication, but uses an
authz file to limit the paths that can be read.
- https://svn.example.com/svn: the "real" one for the developers. Goes
over https, requires authentication, and doesn't use an authz file
(allowing us to set "SVNPathAuthz off", which avoids the performance
loss normally associated with this setup).

Of course you can also have them both over https (it doesn't really
hurt the anonymous one).
