RE: Proposal for svnserve as a Windows service - 0.1

From: Arlie Davis <adavis_at_stonestreetone.com>

Ok, the rough consensus appears to be:

  * Keep changes to svnserve minimal -- only add
    the support to start (and stop!) as a service.

  * Have a separate installer.

  * All config is stored in the service binary path,
    as a command-line.

The rest is really just nitpicking, and doesn't seem productive.

I actually already have this working, so I'll polish the work and provide
diffs. This will provide 90% of what people here actually care about, since
you can use the sc.exe that ships with Windows to install any arbitrary
service. (Not any arbitrary exe -- the binary still must make use of the
service API to work as a service. SRVANY.EXE is a dog, and doesn't count.)

These diffs are modest enough (only a single --service arg is added to
svnserve) that we can probably all agree to commit them. The service
management part can come later, whether it's command line and/or GUI, etc.
