I apologize in advance if this has been already discussed, but why
wouldn't you put the "service maintenance" options (create, update,
delete, list) in a separate executable, like svnservice.exe or something?
And just limit the changes to svnserve.exe to those needed to actually run
as a service? That seems like it would be a lot cleaner and greatly
reduce the changes need to svnserve.exe itself. I do not like the idea of
all of those command line options being added to svnserve.exe.

svnservice.exe could also just be a GUI with command line option support
if you were to go in this direction and then there would be less pieces to
deal with.
