But doesn't the service your creating need to be "service" binary? It's
been awhile since I've done this, but IIRC, services are executables
with a particular type of interface. svnserve is not that type of
executable, so it needs to be wrapped by something that is. That's why
you need to use srvany, svnservice, or FireDaemon. Feel free to correct
me if I'm wrong, I just don't want to pass around misinformation. :-)
