Wasn't the original idea that the GET requests could be served by a
HTTP proxy in front of the server? And also that running multiple
GET's at once would be faster?

I do not think the proxy has turned out to be a reality and it does
not work with SSL, so maybe not a bad idea.

We also have the SVNAllowBulkUpdates directive that we could let a
server admin use if they wanted the clients to use GET's because they
had a working proxy.
