Thanks to your help, I think I got it.  While gathering more information
for the different configs I tried in order to answer the "/exactly/ what
happens" question, I retried one, and it actually worked.
LimitExcept (read/write) needs to be before Limit (read-only), and
read/write groups need to be listed in both Limit and LimitExcept.  I
thought I had tried this, but maybe I changed something ever-so-slightly
this time.  Here's what ended up working:

#Begin Config
<Location /repos/repo1>
   DAV svn
   SVNPath /var/repos/repo1
   SVNIndexXSLT "/svnindex.xsl"
   AuthType Basic
   AuthName "Authorization Realm"
   AuthPAM_Enabled on
      	Require group "domain+read write group"
            Require group "domain+read only group" "domain+read write
#End Config

Again, thanks very much!  This was driving me crazy. :)
