Correction - your admins don't want to be bothered using Apache. They
shouldn't be living in a vacuum - if there's something that will
achieve the organization's goals and needs, they should be supporting
it unless there's a good business case against it. Just my opinion

Really, Apache is the best way to achieve what you're looking to do.
"Don't know much about it" is simply willful ignorance, which is
easily overcome by spending a couple hours reading httpd.apache.org.
If server resources are a concern, then perhaps you need to run a
dedicated server for Subversion. But I don't think it'll add that much
overhead to the server - unless it's already overloaded.
