If you like svnserve, keep it. Switching to Apache would be beneficial
if you already have Apache running on your server, or http will slip
through any firewalls/network configs easier than svn://. But it
sounds like you aren't in that situation.

If I were in your shoes (and I hope to be in a couple months), I would
take the opportunity to upgrade to SVN 1.4 as well, and do a dump/load
cycle to take full advantage of the improved diff algorithm (at least
that's my plan when I move/upgrade my SVN server, if it happens).
