  Would it make any sense to divide the Subversion-over-HTTP RA layer
  into two parts? A server-side-only "mod_dav_deltav_svn", and
  rename the current "mod_dav_svn" to "mod_svn" (or somesuch).

  In this setup, mod_dav_deltav_svn would allow DeltaV clients
  to talk to a Subversion server. mod_svn is used by ra_dav
  to allow Subversion clients to talk to Subversion servers
  over HTTP in an optimised way.

  It's probably a lot of extra work to maintain two Apache modules
  with very different behaviours though. Plus, is there any intention
  of making Subversion a valid DeltaV *client* as well?
