svnserve, bind to port <1024

To be able to come thru a firewall I'm forced to run svnserve on a privileged
port (<1024). Since svnserve is not able to change it's UID after the socket
has bound to a port and I don't want to run it as root, I had to change the
source (just add setuid(UID), setgid(GID) to subversion/svnserve/main.c)

I really think this feature should be a standard in svnserve, are there any
plans to implement this?

thanks for this great piece of software
