It's not versioned by default, but you certainly *could* put it under
revision control, like any other directory.

Have you tried invoking it on a URL?

With Apache conf directives, if you're using ra_svn (i.e., WebDAV) to
access your repository. Or you can use mod_authz_svn.

If you're using ra_svn (the svnserve daemon & friends), I'm not sure
such a feature is implemented yet.

You use CVS :-).

I don't understand the parenthetical claim, but in any case,
Subversion does not support locking right now. It may someday, but
that's post-1.0.

Like any other file (we don't distinguish between text and binary,
though you might want to avoid setting the svn:keywords or svn:eol
property on those files!).
