I don't see these problems. Subversion uses libsvn_ra_local on local
repositories so if the repo is on the same mascine then if you want
to run viewsvn on the same box there only a une more lib layer between
viewsvn and repository, instead if i want to run viewsvn on another
maschine i simply can do it.

It could be a sort of load balancing.
