Setting up a Subversion server farm

Could you guys take a look at my plan for setting up a Subversion server
farm and let me know if you see any gotchas?

1. There will be six machines running svnserve, all pointing to the same
root (-r option). This root will be an NFS mount of a directory that
contains the many repositories for the projects that this farm must serve.

2. Each machine will have a unique name in DNS like svn1.mydomain.com,
svn2.mydomain.com, etc. but will always be accessed by clients through
svn.mydomain.com. To provide some load balancing, svn.mydomain.com will be
an alias that will map to specific svnX.mydomain.com servers in a
round-robin fashion.

3. No authentication will be done (this is all behind the company firewall
and all users are trusted)

4. All repositories are using FSFS.

See any issues? I am most interested in this: Is it okay to have multiple
machines running svnserve, possibly accessing the same repository at the
same time? From all I read it is, but I just wanted to be sure.

thanks in advance,
David
