Agreed. I'd still want to see a little "Powered by Subversion" in there,
with the link to subversion.tigris.org. But the rest of the details could
easily come from ap_psignature().

Server: response header, actually, but yup. It's gotta be removed from
there, and SVN can't do that. Thus, you'd have to use ServerTokens anyway,
so we may as well use that (via ap_psignature).
