SVN as a versioning filesystem?

I'm considering using subversion as a versioning filesystem
for a bunch of mobile users with laptops and desktop machines - I
use tigrisssvn on my machines to keep track of a bunch of
spreadsheets and the like (inefficient, but disk is cheap ...),
and I like it a lot, but I want to try and use it for some
users who want transparent access to a filesystem (they're
currently using samba, but I want to be able to keep
versions around if possible - with a policy to determine
what to keep versions of and what to just store unversioned)

I know that it's possible to use a DAV server to work with
windoze "my network places" folders, has anyone here any
real-world experience with this sort of thing? Before I
spend any great amount of time on it I'd like to know
if I'll be able to make it a mostly transparent
