Re: svnserve privilege changing/dropping command line options patch

One of svnserve's original design considerations was to be very, very
light weight compared to Apache. If you're going to get into all kinds
of fancy shmancy options and additional set uid/gid code and whatnot,
then you've moved away from one of its original design points.

Marcus provides some good options... very helpful to keep svnserve slim.
