Oh, I have missed this posting, but I can answer/comment it anyway.

I don't know how to turn svnserve into a real service under Windows and I
don't think that I have time to learn how to do it within a very near
future (well I might try in the beginning of the next week).

How does Apache do it? Is this an Apache or APR issue? I can't imagine
that's black belt programming when making svnserve to run as a real
service under Windows.

It would be nice if someone can code it or give me a starting point of
turning svnserve for Windows into a real service.
