IIRC, there are a number of ways to implement autoversioning, and
they're advertised in the DAV:auto-versioning prop. mod_dav_svn sets
that value to 'DAV:checkout-checkin'... I thought that meant that a
lone PUT request is interpreted as 'CHECKOUT, PUT, CHECKIN'.

But what *really* happens is mod_dav_svn gets a PUT request, and then
under the hood does MKACTIVITY, CHECKOUT, PUT, MERGE, just like a
normal svn client would do. From the outside, nobody can really tell
what's going on. The truth is that we don't actually support CHECKOUT
without an activity. :-/
