You mean libsvn_ra. libsvn_repos is a this wrapper around libsvn_fs, and is
therefor also only useful on the same box as the repository.

The downside of doing this through ra would be (IMHO):
 - speed problems
 - increased server load
 - increased network traffic

I don't really see the advantage of having ViewSVN work on remote repositories.
If you really don't want ViewSVN on the same box as your main svn server, you need
repository replication... ;)
