WebDAV connection to SVN repository possible w/o Apache?

I've done enough research to recognize that I am not alone in my desire to
be able to mount and make accessible via WebDAV, an SVN repository w/o the
need of Apache. That said, I haven't been able to find any concrete
solutions that provide the same basic functionality that I have become
addicted to with Apache+Neon+SVN, mounting various repositories as a local

Does anybody know of an existing solution that provides this same
functionality without the Apache overhead? Don't get me wrong -- I *LOVE*
Apache. However, I have a Linux distro I have been working on that is
intended to run in a virtualized environment on the client, providing
various localized services (one of which is providing an SVN-backed WebDAV
drive that uses svnsync as a form of cheap, easy, and vendor lock-in free as
a form of data backup. You can learn more @
and while Apache definitely provides all that one could ever hope or dream
for in a web server, when its only being accessed by the individual user, a
much lighter weight solution (in terms of total on-disk-size) such as
lighttpd, mongrel, or xsp is more than adequate to quickly and cheaply serve
up each request.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
