I wasn't implying that the tests had anything to do with HTTP/DAV.

I think we're thinking differently in regards to the users of the
PORTING guide. I was thinking in terms of a what a SVN user would
get on a particular OS. A beginning SVN user would look for their
system type and see, "Ahh, on my OS I can get a SVN client that can
access the repos via the filesystem and via HTTP/DAV."

In fact, we may want three catagories.

1) On that system, can a user check out code over the network?
2) On that system, can a user check out code over the network
   and over the local filesystem? We could skip the network
   here and just list the local filesystem, but since network
   access is always included in the client, I leave it in.
3) Can you run a server on this OS. On HP-UX, the answer is no,
   but you can say yes to 1) and 2).

Maybe I'm just high tonight or sleep deprived :)
