[Google Summer of Code] Subversion servlet for WEBrick

While I am already a member of this project as a ja.po/Ruby-tools
committer, I am still a student and searching for a GSoC task that I
can do for this project and can make Subversion more attractive. I'd
like to propose developing a Subversion servlet for WEBrick, although
it is not in the project tasks.

Currently, Subversion has only one HTTP server option: Apache +
mod_dav_svn. So, I'd like to add the second option: Subversion
servlet for WEBrick. WEBrick is an HTTP server toolkit written in
Ruby and is included in the standard distribution of Ruby. Although
it is not appropriate for creating HTTP servers with global access, it
is useful for creating servers that can be set up easily and for
creating servers for testing and internal use. In particular, with a
popular web application framework Ruby on Rails, WEBrick is now widely
used. My idea is to add a Subversion servlet for WEBrick, which can
ease using Subversion from programs (in particular, web applications)
written in Ruby.

I'd like to ask questions such as:

* Do you like the idea that Subversion will have such a feature inside?

* If you like the idea, do you think this is good as a GSoC project in
  terms of size or something else?

Any feedbacks, comments, suggestions for improvements, and advices to
create a fine proposal are welcome. :-)

Many thanks,
