Other than OS/400, I am exclusively a Windows user. I certainly do not
have any goals to alienate anyone, and I am just providing comments anyway.
I have no opposition to the proposal.

Maybe we use vastly different software, but virtually every Windows service
I have ever used was installed via their InstallShield-type routine. Like
I said before, for all I know these services have all of the service
management code in the same executable and the install routines are just
invoking it. I do not know. If everyone thinks the service management
code belongs in svnserve I do not have any objections. I just thought it
would be simpler and more likely to pass code review if it wasn't. I have
no problem being wrong.
