The problem is that people don't seem to read the FAQ before they post to the
list, so just saying "it's in the FAQ already" won't get you rid of these
mails :-)

If SubVersion (svnserve/mod_dav_svn) would tell you, "You can't run a
SubVersion server on Win9x/ME, see the FAQ for an explanation", that would be
most helpfull for those poor souls ;-)
