As an aside, talking about making a Subversion server available via
other "containers", I thought it would be interesting to see a
Subversion server using ICE as the transport, instead of HTTP or our svn
protocol. ICE is an open source CORBA replacement:


We're starting to use it internally for an asset management system. ICE
is a very fast transport, if you were interested in getting more
throughput from a svn repository.
