OK, so you have a solution where the server is more or less embedded in the client. But
since Subversion is so nicely layered, wouldn't it be simple to just require a server
installation for the cases where you want to support local access? Seems odd to me that a
pure client cannot be implemented although a lot of effort has gone into making the whole
thing client/server and layered.

I think it would be very reasonable to say that if you want local repositories, you need to
install the server.
