sorry, but I don't want to have any sort of http-daemon running at
all. actually I also have OpenSSH running and that together with
svnserve is enough of an attack vector besides the ineviatable but
securable tcp/ip stack itself.
running too many services on one box is not good, security and performance-wise.
I'm trying to keep both Dual-Core CPUs free for all the hard work
svnserve does when updating/committing (actually I'm happy svnserve
can saturate the CPU but this naturally does not leave much space for
additional services).
