Not at all. This is the right place.

It wasn't possible when you asked, but I just configured this, and it
seems to work.

Specifically, I have tested that I can point my browser at:

to see the gitweb view of the git history on the web, and I can also use
that same URL for a git clone:

        git clone

and that works.

I also verified that I a "git push" from such a clone results in a 403
error as desired.

So give that a try, and anyone, let me know if you see anything that I
may have broken or setup incorrectly.

Also, I haven't yet updated any documentation to point to this new
mechanism, so that's something that could still be done.
