No, that won't work on Windows -- an unpatched mod_dav.so will not have
the functions exported or even visible to anyone so mod_dav_svn.so will
fail to load at runtime. I just tried it and Apache fails start with an
unpatched mod_dav.so.

I'm not very familiar with Apache...does it require modules to be built
against the same C runtime as Apache was? If so, the C runtime used for
the patched mod_dav.so will need to be carefully documented in the
release -- otherwise you can get mysterious crashes and memory corruption.
