Agree that if you are an experienced admin on apache and know your way
around the config file then it would not be a nightmare. But what
happens
if you have only one fixed ip address and you are running a website of
iis
using both port 80 and 443 and also want to run subversion using the
WebDAV
network layer so that it is accessible for any user who's firewall
allows them to browse the internet. Which means that apache needs to run
on
port 80 or 443. This is a bit more complex than the freedom of your
solution
where you can just change the port number.

The need does exists for an IIS ISAPI plug-in not only for companies
that has
a particular policy on running on IIS but also to other new comers
(specifically ones from the a Microsoft background) to easily integrate
their current solutions with subversion and by doing so expose them to
the
true freedom of open source.
