Feature suggestion for read-only access to fsfs repos over http

From: Henrik Thostrup Jensen <htj_at_cs.aau.dk>

I discussed this on #svn, and it was said that I would not like the answer
to this but I'm gonna try anyway :-).

I have a local fsfs repo, which I want to allow read-only access to one of
my friends. Unfortunately he does have access to the development machine
and I cannot run a server on the machine, since it is heavily firewalled.
The only way I have to export the data is over plain http (I have no need
for secrecy with the project). I tried symlinking to the repo within my
.public_html, but I got 301 error when trying to check it out. I read the
FAQ on the subject, and think I understand why I get it, but I cannot
change httpd.conf (nor do I really want to).

While I can do all sorts of hackish ways to solve the problem (post-commit
hook or cron job to produce directories/tarballs/emails) I would like to
able to do checkout over http and update directly from it. I don't see why
this should be much different than checking out from a local read-only
fsfs repo.
