It kinda is, if we want to do a good job.

But I don't want svnserve handling that full complexity. It's my
position that apr and apr-util should be doing all the heavy lifting of
writing a network daemon, and Subversion should simply be taking
advantage of it. There's already too much code in svnserve and ra_svn
which isn't specific to Subversion.

Of course, actually extending apr and apr-util to do that heavy lifting
requires careful design and no small amount of work. So the current
reality is that svnserve is a rather anemic daemon.
