ViewCVS works by directly parsing the RCS files in a CVS repository,
so the repository must be on the same machine as Apache. We plan to
extend this system, by using python bindings to directly access a
subversion repository.

If you want to extend either ViewCVS or ViewSVN to access a repository
across a network, go for it. But that's a huge can of worms IMO.
Zillions of people run ViewCVS and experience the "restriction" of the
repository having to be local; my impression is that nobody really
feels this is a problem, though. It would be an interesting feature,
yes, but I don't think there's a pressing need.
