+1 on favoring client side administration; the current `svnadmin'
program exists mainly because we needed it to debug our filesystem
while the rest of Subversion was still under development :-) And of
course it's always easier to write something to operate on local disk
data than to run over a network. But that doesn't mean it's a great
user tool.

Server administration can happen through other WebDAV tools, and
through new commands added to the Subversion client[s]... and a little
overlap never hurt anyone. :-)
