svnserve on Windows

First, I'm really enjoying the switch from CVS (turns head, spits) to Subversion. Congratulations on some tasty work.

Has anyone worked on, or is there any interest in, getting the Windows svnserve process registered as a proper Windows service?

FWIW, I'm running svnserve on my XP machine, and was initially frustrated in my attempts to get the service to (a) always be running, and (b) not show an unnecessary console window on my screen, such that my kids might close it. As a functional but crude solution, I've added svnserve to the [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Run] key, and have written a small wrapper that hides the console and guarantees that only one svnserve will be running simultaneously. I've attached the source and reg files, in case anyone else wants to experiment along the same lines.
