Aha! I completely forgot about this option. Thanks Ivan!

This strategy gives us the best of both worlds. It allows us to write
a 'clean' mod_svn module with no baggage, minimal code, totally
streamlined and aligned with svn_ra.h. But it also allows mod_dav_svn
to coexist and speak the older protocol at the same public URL.

If an admin wants to upgrade to the faster protocol, he just installs
mod_svn next to mod_dav_svn, then asks his users to upgrade their
clients when they're ready.

Am I missing anything here?
