Yup. ProxyPass is a *much* cleaner solution. It should also be faster and
more flexible than the rewrite-based approach.

Note that we don't have our caching headers set up properly yet, but once we
do, you *will* be able to cache the responses. And quite well, actually.
Thus, you'll most likely be able to remove the NoCache directive. It means
that your front-end server can offload a good chunk of work from your
backend SVN server. (and I seriously doubt that rewrite can do this)
