If you are on a platform with a decent thread library the worker mpm
is a good bet. mod_dav + svn is thread safe.

It kind of depends on how much memory you have, what your usage pattern
looks like etc. Try switching to the worker mpm first and then decide
how much memory you can live with being (permanently) taken up by httpd.
Devide that number by the average number of httpd processes (with worker
default config and no heavy load: 2).
