I'll investigate. Shouldn't be too hard. Should actually be simpler than the 
current version, considering the very same files should be present 
in .svn/text-base.

Or we could just parse the output of 'svn status --no-ignore' and erase 
everything ignored (I) or added (?).

The same file should work for Apache Basic authentication. No need to change 

As for svn+ssh users, things ought to stay the same as well. But the 
Subversion docs don't recommend svn+ssh for BDB backends.

I'm more worried about the other things inside CVSROOT. For one thing, I 
don't remember Subversion having a centralised svnignore property 
server-side. You have to set it in each and every directory in the 
repository or set it in ~/.subversion/config, client-side.

Two other admin tasks involved in the process would be the new setting up of 
ACLs -- with Apache <Limit> directives or with Authz files -- and the 
configuration of svn:externals for 'admin'.
