Merry Xmas. :-)

Hopefully gstein will have time to look this over. I think it's
pretty clean and simple... doing the stuff we've but discussing for
the last N months.

After switching your mod_dav_svn dir to the same dir in the branch,
all you have to do is add one line to your Location:

<Location /svn>
  DAV svn
  SVNParentPath /usr/local/svn

I'm sure there are little buglets to work out still. For example,
'make check' passes over dav with SVNAutoversioning not-present. When
it's present, however, I'm seeing minibugs (like basic-tests #16.)

I'll be offline for the next few days. Have fun.
