That would be quite great, Brandon. Dunno about *nix systems, but
as Windows user I must admit a native server bundled with
Subversion and not needing big setup of its own but optionally
running transparently as service in the background would make
things a lot easier. I had no difficulty to run svnserve in its own
DOS box and then doing some svn commands in another, but
setting up Apache as server for fool-proof everyday use with its
bunch of own configuration gives me additional (mild) headache.
Finally, I have to master *two* new apps *and* define toolbars in
Homesite *and* teach co-workers using SVN/TortoiseSVN.
