I've seen lots and lots. :-)
The first mistake everybody seems to make is to forget that parameter
evaluation takes time, so they put debug level checks into the logging
functions themselves. You wouldn't _balieve_ the kind of slowdown this
can cause.

You don't have to use that configuratin file. If you want to keep things
simple, you can do all the initialization programatically (which would
make sense for svnserve, anyway).
