Status of Subversion on the Mac?

We are a Mac only shop and we want to start Subversion on our file
server. Clients and Server are Macs running Mac OS X 10.4.

I read the Subversion book on version 1.1 and I saw that the current
version is 1.3. The book notes some shortcomings with Mac OS X, and I
want to ask if they still apply?

1. Using Subversion with WebDAV and autoversioning is described as
tricky in the book. Is this still so?

2. We work mostly with binary files so we don't need sophisticated
diff and resolve functions. When we discover a mismatch we will just
chose one file version over the other. Is the WebDAV solution "enough"
in this scenario or would you recommend a real Subversion client? I'm
asking because WebDAV seems a lot easier for our users.

3. Any tips on Subversion and the Mac? All help is appreciated.

Thank you in advance.
Regards, Johnny.
