I don't follow. What new accounts? I use svnserve on a LAN and
other than setting up the r/w permissions for svnserve, there was no
need to create any additional accounts. It just seems that in a LAN
environment the encryption is not likely necessary.
When I work remotely I just make a SSH tunnel to the LAN anyway and
still use the svn:// protocol for Subversion. That way my laptop's
working copies work when I'm home or at work on the LAN.

Doesn't the file:// protocol still use the current user id to track
