FWIW, Check the mail I sent out last night to the dev list. It shows
a transcript of me fiddling with ra_svn.

Considering that ra_svn is a newborn baby, hardly tested, and likely
full of bugs at the moment... I think you're making a pretty silly
decision.

Apache is supposed to be this big, well-tested, massively scalable
thing. On IRC, you kept describing about how httpd children were
constantly hanging and/or causing repository wedges. You stated that
this problem seemed to get worse as the repository grew bigger (to 6GB
and beyond). I think the better approach here is to work with Apache
and SVN developers, and figure out why you're seeing these problems.

(IIRC, Gustavo Niemeyer is running a 5GB repository and *not* having
these problems.)
