[gmane.comp.version-control.subversion.user] Running svnserve as suid svn

I did not get any answers on this one at the users lists, so I try my
luck here as well.

attached mail follows:

For several reasons we are required to use svn+ssh:// to access our
svn repo, at the same time we then dislike that we must have a common
group for all the svn users, and that the users then can muck around
in the repo itself and create (unintentinal) havoc.

It seems ut us that a (temporal, until svnserve support SASL/SSL)
solution might be to make the svnserve binary suid svn.
Is this something anyone has tried? Will it work as expected, or will
it burn down the house?
