Dual Homing and Subversion or using Subversion in a dual homed en vironment - WebDav & SvnServe

I have been looking through the red bean book and I haven't found anything
on dual homing. I have the following questions:
Is it safe to use subversion via WebDev or via svnserver?
Is there any speed gain from doing so?
I have a Linux machine with dual NICs serving subversion via WebDav only.
Right now one of the NICs is disabled. I was thinking of enabling both and
setting up a round-robin DNS for the two IP addresses. Then half of my
subversion users would be accessing subversion via one interface and the
other half via the other interface, allowing me to maximize network
throughput. I realize that this will eventually swamp my disk and CPU, but
due to my hardware I have a feeling that the network is my slowest part, so
I want to increase that.
I have been monitoring my SVN box with Ganglia
(http://ganglia.sourceforge.net <http://ganglia.sourceforge.net/> ) and I
see that my CPUs are mostly idle, my disks seem ok, but my network looks a
little busy...
Thanks for the help...
