None-the-less, the fact that http:// access provides functionality that
is otherwise unavailable (directory level, per-user access control) and
that the Subversion team has said that they have little interest in
changing this means that for many users, using Apache/WebDAV is the only
choice available.

I'm not trying to imply that the Subversion team is making a bad
decision, by the way: I'd *much* rather they worked on SCM functionality
(improved merging, hint, hint ;-)) than duplicating functionality
that *is* available in a different form. Of course, I don't need
directory-level, per-user access control, and svn+ssh works just fine
for me, so I might be biased.


"Outlook not so good." That magic 8-ball knows everything! I'll ask
about Exchange Server next.
