Hee hee! I'm thinking of an obvious corrolary to Godwin's Law

now... :-)

Basically agree with Perry's points, though, bluntness of expression
aside. Saying "we don't know of any buffer overrun bugs in Apache"
isn't very meaningful compared with a real security audit. The more
lines of code, the more difficult the audit. So what can we conclude?
What we already knew: that we don't know for sure how secure
Subversion is.

Fine. But:

We're not going to suddenly start writing a new RA layer. We've got
enough to do before 1.0 as it is. Apache+Subversion is what you get
for now, unless you can volunteer the time to make an alternative.
(And if you choose the latter course, we're happy to help!)
