I have read that different access methods can be used simultaneously.
I did not know it was possible for several svnserve processes to
access the same repository. That's great news. I think it solves my
problem, I will just setup another svnserve process for anonymous
users listening on a different TCP port, with a special --config-file.

But wait. How do I setup per repository authz-db together with a global
svnserve.conf? My svnserve serves several repositories.

I use FSFS. In fact, I have hated BDB for many years since I ran slapd and
especially spamprobe with the BDB backend.
