svn client local file access across win/unix

I am just starting to play with svn at my work as a replacement for VSS. I
created a test repository in IRIX and everything seems to work fine.
However, we also have win32 machines on our network. We already have SAMBA
set up and running, so I was wondering if there was really a need for
http:// access. I know the svn:// access is very very alpha at the moment.

Could something be done to translate a windows path to unix and vice versa?
Say, in my .svn/ config files, there could be a UNIX path and a WINDOWS path
to the same repository. Let the SAMBA/NFS/whatever handle file permissions
and user access, and still have access to "local" repositories?

I'm thinking this could be a small task, but I really am not familiar with
the codebase yet. :)

Would it be beneficial or worth anyone's time (or mine) to try and implelent
this? Any feedback? Good idea? Sucks? Have I been standing on my head too
long? ;)
