Ok, I should have looked a bit further, it seems that
tests/cmdline/README is a bit outdated (at least concerning
win-tests.py). The usage message says:

  -u URL, --url=URL : run ra_dav or ra_svn tests against URL;
                           will start svnserve for ra_svn tests

It seems it can also start httpd, if given the --httpd-dir option. I
didn't know that, until now I was starting my svnserve and httpd
separately to be able to run those tests.

Sorry for the noise.
