I'm not sure where you're getting your ideas about svnserve having any
kind of 'uneasy' future, but it's simply not true. svnserve is just
as supported as mod_dav_svn/apache, and will continue to be supported
for the forseeable future. Personally, I make use of svnserve far
more often than I do mod_dav_svn/apache for my own repositories, and I
suspect that is not all that uncommon.
