The svn protocol is stateful, so many operations are faster across it.
Security-wise, passwords are transmitted using CRAM-MD5, which doesn't
transmit your password... but it also requires a separate passwd file on
the server (i.e., it doesn't currently make use of SASL, or built-in
Windows authentication mechanisms). Licensing-wise, you're under the
same restrictions as Apache... it's unlimited.
