Mac OS X - best setup for small developer?

Hi all,

I'm in the process of installing subversion under Mac OS X 10.3.8 and
I have a few "best practices" questions. I've browsed the FAQ and I'm
wading through the svn-book but I still need some help.

First my basic setup and requirements. I have a desktop development
machine (PowerMac dual 2 GHz G5) and a laptop (PowerBook 1.5 GHz F4).
I do most development on the desktop machine but occasionally I have
to go to a client site with the laptop. I had been using VooDoo but
it's not OS X native and it's stopped working properly with the
latest OS releases.

I'd like to be able to not only have a working copy of the code on
the laptop, but also be able to access older versions from the
repository. Unfortunately, most clients do not allow "foreign"
machines on their networks, so I'd probably need a copy of the
repository(s) on the laptop rather than trying to access it via the
Internet. When the laptop repository(s) is "active", the desktop
repository would not be in use (there's only one of me).

(1) Would it be easiest to use "local" access (as depicted in Figure
1.1 of "The Book") between the client and repository on each machine
and simply duplicate the repository(s) from desktop to laptop before
a trip and then from laptop to desktop after returning (e.g. using
Synchronize! Plus from Qdea)?

(2) Any benefits in my situation to using svnserve or mod_dav_svn
under Apache rather than local access?

(3) I'm planning on using fsfs for the repository - no major problems
with that under Mac OS X I should know about?

(4) Although the "Book" says you can put multiple projects in one
repository, is there any advantage to having a repository for each
project (most my projects are just text code files)?
