Nope, I'd say ra_pipe is by far the least useful of all potential
RA methods. Yet, if you restrict your world model to how CVS works,
you'll be uncomfortable using anything other than ra_pipe.

IMHO, DAV is going to be the most useful by far. It'll be the only
RA implementation with ACL support. That is a huge advantage.

And, I don't buy that ra_dav + mod_ssl is going to be inherently
less secure than ra_pipe + SSH. Actually, since SSH access would
require a local account, I'd posit that ra_pipe + SSH is *less*
secure than ra_dav + mod_ssl. -- justin
