Simplicty comes at a price. I you can authenticate via LDAP if you
use Apache, but that option does not exist via svnserve last I
checked. svnserve is also not secure unless you use svn+ssh:// for
your access method.

Depends on whether you're using bare svn:// or svn+ssh://

The client doesn't care what OS the server is running.
