This isn't going to help, but: I'm going to pretty much insist that code
of this nature go into APR behind a nice clean interface, not into
svnserve itself. The amount of non-Subversion logic in svnserve should
be minimized. Just as not every APR-using Unix daemon should have to
implement all the Unix-specific daemon logic (although it's only a few
lines of code), not every APR-using Windows service should have to
implement all the Windows-specific service logic, especially since it
seems to bottom out at a hundred lines of code or so. (And Apache seems
to spend almost 1500 lines of code on it.)
