Not quite. It's not "every subdirectory", it's "every child
directory". That means it will not descend into subdirectories of
subdirectories, fir example, so they all need to be right there in
/var/svn. Also, while symlinks to other locations may be acceptable to
the mod_dav_svn module, the repositories need to be accessible to the
"apache" user. This can get adventuresome if you're running svnserve
or svn+ssh access without a devault svn+ssh user, used in parallel to
Apache.
