Patrick, if speed is a big issue and you're using the http:// access
method over the LAN, then consider using svnserve (svn://). It is
*much* faster at ls and log operations. Some tests I was doing
yesterday on our repository show svn:// to be 5x faster (5s vs. 25s [1])
to view the full repository log (tested over the LAN). This is is the
difference between usable and unusable in my books.

I don't know how much this holds true when going over the internet.

Tested on a Xeon 3ghz 1GB, Win2003, svn 1.1.3. over 100Mb lan.
   svn log svn://server/repo -v -r1:HEAD
gives output with 3300 revisions, 43,000 lines, 2.2MB.
