i doubt anyone but you has tried it.

even if you do get it running though, you will have problems, as
svnserve is completely single threaded under windows (since windows
lacks fork, and svnserve currently depends on fork for handling multiple
concurrent accesses). this is especially problematic since there are
some svn operations that require multiple connections to the server in
order to function, and thus they won't work at all.
