Distributed Subversion servers running off of same DB - possible?

dear subversioners,

i have a requirement for providing a WebDav file server
[AutoVersioning=on] but i need to be able to tell the
client that the solution is viable for high availability

the simple question is:

* Can i run several subversion servers (on different ports of course)
* on the same machine pointing to the SAME database files?

the alternate question is:

* Do there exist any database back-ends for subversion that
* can support simultaneous subversion server access?

the _real_ question is:

* If i run several Apache Subversion servers on a POSIX compliant
* Distributed File Server which can even handle POSIX byte-range
* locking etc. - such as the one that has been recently released under
* LGPL by The Open Group (such as DCE/DFS)
* will it work?

i.e. is the internal design of subversion's database locking
sufficiently good such that it can even extend outside of
running subversion on different machines with access to the same

thank you for your time and your answers,
