mod_dav and Subversion provide additional protocol elements to Apache.
Generally, you work with them from a client, rather than other server-side
code (e.g. at this time, you can't develop a PHP-based web app that
manipulates a mod_dav or Subversion repository).

I'm not sure if you're talking about writing a client application, or
writing a server-side application.

For a client application, you would use the Subversion command-line client,
or the Subversion libraries to talk to the server. You could also talk to
the server directly via WebDAV and DeltaV, but note that Subversion is not a
generic DeltaV server.

[ mod_dav can implement a full DeltaV server, but not "out of the box" -- a
  custom backend would need to be developed (kind of like what Subversion is
  doing, although it just hasn't completed all the work for the full DeltaV
  behaviors yet) ]
