I am currently piloting a prototype of such a setup within my
organization. I have three backend workers, all accessing the same FSFS
repository over NFS. The back end workers are running Apache 2.2.0 and
mod_dav_svn/mod_authz_svn 1.3.0, as well as Trac 0.9.4. The load
balancing system is running Pound 2.0.1 (with --enable-msdav) with
sticky session support for Trac.

HTH,
Cory.
