Some platforms don't have fork() and have been using this feature ever
since the inception of svnserve. So, yes, it's stable. On most
fork()-ing platforms however I wouldn't use it: if a sofware error
causes the server to crash, it'll crash the complete server process
with all its connections. When using fork(), only 1 connection dies.

bye,

Erik.
