There's no way to shut down svnserve short of killing the process.

Yes, a thread serves one request, then exits. I know it's not the most
optimal thing to do, but that's what we have now.

That's right.

The trouble with this is that the "dumb" way of limiting the number of
threads could easily lead to a deadlock. A client can open several
interdependent connections to svnserve, and if we just blindly limited
the number of threads, that'd lead th clients blocking themselves.

(I tried that once, so this is based on experience, not conjecture. :)

I very strongly suggest you make your changes in a working copy checked
out from SVN trunk. For one thing, you'll be tracking the latest code as
well. For another, we won't accept patches against anything else.
