I'll take a look at the FAQ and see if I can find a place to mention
the APR version issue.

For what it's worth, I believe there have been some changes in
Subversion 1.4.x (not out yet, but real soon now) that may help this a
bit. There are a few parts of the working copy library that now do
things in a streaming manner instead of using multiple passes over a
given file (writing it to disk in between steps). Not sure if that'll
matter for your use case.

Additionally, if you have a use case which is much faster in another
system, I believe Dan Berlin recently mentioned on this list that he
was curious about such things, and would be willing to try to make the
necessary changes to Subversion to speed it up for those use cases, if
he could get some test cases to work with.
