I assume that a good portion of this number is for serving SVN over
DAV, which I don't know if we want to do. I do have apache2 setup on
karmann, and through the magic of yast2, all the deps for serving svn
were satisfied very nicely without my intervention.

Why is building it myself a requirement/virtue? This isn't something

I share some of the frustrations with SVN's design and reliance on BDB
and Apache. SVN 1.1 includes a new filesystem backend, but it's not
released/stable yet, so we don't have that available. libapr is the
apache dependency, and I do think it's good that they're not
re-inventing the network client/server wheel for yet another
enterprising skript kiddie to root.

Neat. I guess we're in agreement then. SVN it is.
