It can, but it can get tricky. On a Linux or UNIX system, the will
need to be shared by a common group of which both the "svnserve"
daemon user and the Apache daemon user will need to be members, and
the permissions of the writable subdirectories will need to be "2770"
to help ensure that new files are created correctly with the right
ownership. 2770, means no one *else* can see the files, and and uses
the "sgid" bit to help ensure the group ownership is set correctly on
new files: look it up!

Also, you'll need to review your user and group permissions to write
to the repository: Apache can have its own restrictions, on top of
those in svnserve.conf, and it can get tricky to make consistent.
