Indeed. You'd still have to write a mapping between the soap-wrapped RPC
and the SVN repository layer, which amounts to writing a plug-in for
your particular SOAP server. The interfaces are marginally more portable
than Apache's module API, but it would still be a significant amount of
work for every supported server.

Besides, I don't see any benefit in it; a) you can always run Apache
alongside another server, b) you lose performance by having to wrap
everything with SOAP envelopes, and c) there's always svnserve if Apache
isn't appropriate.
