I was under the impression that FSFS and NFS would work fine together.

However, what about using a storage-attached network (SAN) like
Apple's Xsan? These kinds of volumes can be mounted simultaneously on
multiple servers and read from and written to without conflict.
Shouldn't a bank of servers with e.g. round-robin DNS and Apache 2
and mod_dav_svn and repositories stored on such a SAN be able to
provide load-balanced access to these repositories?
