http vs file

I'm just wondering the pros and cons of using http vs file.

So far, I've been using the file approach. That has been positive for me
so far.

However, I might start a project with a collegue that will need access
to the repository remotely. We're using Hamachi to bridge our connection
and we are able to share documents via shares on our PCs through the
Hamachi connection.

I was thinking creating a share on my webserver (Win2k3, IIS, SQL 2005),
share the repository and dev folders and have him access them through
Hamachi using the file approach. Another idea I read about was
installing Apache on the webserver, having it run on a different port
and have us access the repository that way.

1. Would using http make the Subversion process faster? Checkout,
commits, ect...?
2. Is authorization the main attraction of using Apache for repository
access (compared to using file)?

Any insight (or link) would be appreciated. The best site I've found so
