Yes, me. It works fine. I've set up svnserve to run in inetd mode
in case it holds files in the repository open in daemon mode. The
reason I did this is because I use VMWare images and it seemed the
simplest way to share the repository to a virtual machine.

One thing you might want to be careful of is that most USB drives are
preformatted with FAT32 which may not be the ideal file system for a
Subversion repository. I reformatted my drive with HFS+ (I'm a Mac
user) before creating the repository.
