If you run SVN via mod_dav_svn (Apache httpd) then you can configure access
in such a way that a user does not need shell access to the server at all,
and only exists in Apache's user file. So this may be better for you, yes.

(I believe there are similar configurations possible with the stand-alone
svnserve, but I am not experienced with them.)
