Assuming an NFS server and client implementation that work properly
(i.e. fcntl/flock style locking actually works) a FSFS repository
should work just fine on NFS.

The only remaining issue that might cause trouble that I'm aware of is
the DAV activities database, which lives in the dav/ subdir of the
repository and is only used under mod_dav_svn. Depending on the DBM
back end that APR was built with you could have trouble there.
