Which is what I do.

I use svn+ssh all the time for group projects. Had an existing setup
where the developers have ssh logins to the dev box to leverage. Far
easier to install and configure than Apache 2/DAV. Seems a sensible
choice to me ;-)

After setting up the permissions properly haven't had a problem since.
Is there some potential danger I'm missing that's going to bite me when
I least expect it?

Cheers,

Adrian
