It doesn't seem like there will be much code to duplicate; just a call
to svn_fs_deltify or whatever.

I was thinking that svnserve in daemon mode would perform the commit,
answer the caller, and then perform deltification--no need for a fork.
Your API doesn't allow for that.

(It seems like mod_dav_svn should do the same thing if it can;
otherwise, you risk subverting Apache's performance tuning mechanisms by
creating background processes which can't be accounted for by Apache.)
