LimitExcept is actually the documented recommendation; see
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.serverconfig.httpd.html#svn.serverconfig.httpd.authz
(second code snippet)

The other option is to set two separate <Location> blocks, one for
anonymous users (that excludes everything-but-trunk unconditionally) and
one for authenticated users (that requires authentication for all
operations).
