Your question seems to be mainly about websvn, so you might have
better luck asking the websvn developers, or asking on their mailing
list, if they have one.

There are other web-based repository viewers. ViewVC (formerly
ViewCVS) is quite popular. I haven't looked into any of them very
extensively so I can't recommend one or another. (I looked at ViewVC
briefly and found the interface confusing, and I looked at WebSVN
briefly and got PHP errors almost immediately so I abandoned it as
immature, though that may have improved since I looked at it.) I am
particularly fond of the sexy diff viewer in Trac though.

I don't know, but I assume websvn would be able to access the
repository regardless of how it's being served.
