I know you would eat my head for this :-) but IMHO the web based
interface which mod_dav_svn provides should include a full repository
viewer with features such as that ViewCVS provides.

What is the use of a HTML interface to the repository? Quick and dirty
way of browsing files? I think a repository maintenance software
should feature a ViewCVS-like interface in the HTML interface.

You can argue from perception that we'd be spoiling the "simple look" of
the current interface, but a featureful repository viewer should be part
of the Subversion distribution. Don't you think it would be convenient to
provide such an interface for users, rather than the current "simple look" ?
