I don't think this will be an issue for you, but may be for some other
people reading the thread:

To use svnserve, users need shell accounts on the machine. That may be
a concern if the machine belongs to one organization and the developers
don't, but probably not in your case. (It's probably not strictly true,
but you need to really know what you're doing to set up access to
svnserve without giving a shell account.)
