I did that so that people could install the subversion client without
having to install the Apache server.

I think that RedHat 8.0 will finally use the new Apache 2.X series so then
I should not have to maintain the Apache server RPMS to get it to work
with Subversion.

I wanted to make it possible to leave the current Apache 1.3.X in the
RedHat 7.X series and yet make it possible to use the Subversion server on
those machines also.
