That's not very good advice, because the protocol over which the
repository is served (http, https, svn, svn+ssh, file) has no bearing
on what client you use to access it (command-line client, GUI
client). True: serving with Apache happens to give you a read-only
view of the HEAD revision in a web browser, but merely the fact that
you don't need that functionality is no reason to dismiss serving a
repository with Apache; there can be other advantages as well,
depending on your situation. Conversely, the mere fact that you need
to see the repository in a web browser is no good reason (by itself)
to serve the repository via Apache; there are many web-based
repository viewers available (including ViewVC, WebSVN and Trac, to
name just a few) which can provide this feature regardless of the
repository serving protocol.
