Really, you'd have to eventually support both. svnserve might be a little
easier to implement at first as it's not dragged down by the WebDAV
complexities. However, you can probably get a jump start on the WebDAV RA
method by bootstrapping with a pure-Java WebDAV client library (say Slide).
Remember that the libsvn_wc code would be independent of the RA method - and
the WC code would be where the bulk of the work would lie in a pure-Java
solution.

As a datapoint, svn.apache.org uses ra_dav not ra_svn. I know we have a bunch
of users who use SmartCVS - so it wouldn't help our users unless ra_dav were
supported by a SmartSVN. ;-) -- justin
