Eh not much to elaborate - by removing SSH and direct repo 
access/direct accounts - and only allowing a) svn through
apache (and some backup scripts) the whole per-user umask, group access 
persm etc goes away - there is just the
user ID of the web server and the uid of hte backup and that is it. 
(Though backup and recovery has a bit more
perms than I like (and we get nice certificate based user mngt - which 
is really nice as you aint have to keep no
stinking per user secrets).
