Well, it would be nice to get around to, but I haven't given it much thought

Um. I wasn't very clear in my comments. You should be able to serve straight
out of the repository, with a couple caveats.

Let's say that you do something like:

$ svn co http://svn.example.com/repos/project

The locations under /repos/project *cannot* have PHP or SSI enabled. You can
set their MIME type, but that is all.

Now, let's say that some of those are PHP files. You can do the following:

<Location /pages>
  DAV svn
  SVNPath /the/path/to/the/repos
  <LimitExcept GET OPTIONS>
    deny from all
  SetFilter PHP # or whatever the heck to enable stuff

In the above case, /pages is also served straight out of the repository, but
you've enabled PHP on them. Your authors work via /repos/project, but site
visitors go to /pages.

Does that clarify things?

Note that if you aren't using PHP or SSI or anything, but just serving plain
static content, then you can serve straight from /repos/project (or wherever
you place the repository in the URL namespace).
