Ah, well that's at least something. :-)

After making the following changes, unloading, loading, and starting,
I can get the server to run:
- OnDeamand > OnDemand
- '--inetd' > '--daemon'
- comment out the 'inetdCompatibility' key and dictionary

The process is '/opt/local/bin/svnserve --daemon --root=/Users/Shared/
Repository' which apparently works for me because I removed the inetd
options and it's not trying to use launchproxy. Still don't know why
that works for others.

However, this process sticks around; it stays up even when I'm not
accessing the repository, and 'sudo launchctl stop
org.tigris.subversion.svnserv' doesn't work; the process keeps
running. Of course, my Postgres database doesn't stop when I tell it
to either, so it might be (my understanding of) launchd / plists.

At least I can get it running automatically at startup; yay
workaround! :-D
