I don't think you're misunderstanding, I've had people here jump
to similar conclusions ("Hey, we can just serve everything right
out of Subversion!"), forgetting that Subversion plugs into Apache,
not the OS filesystem.

I think the fact that you can browse the repository directly using
mod_dav_svn creates the illusion that it's a general purpose filesystem
that'll plug behind the rest of your web applications.

One way that the original posters requirement *could* be met might
be to use davfs (http://dav.sourceforge.net/) to mount the SVN
repository into the webservers filesystem. This takes care of the
"live" requirement, but adds an unnecessary layer in the middle
(which could be a performance hit).
