There's no MySQL backend for Subversion. The choices are FSFS or BDB.

There are possible solutions for Subversion. You can have one master
repository and a number of slaves which synchronize with the master
using svnsync. You can set up write-thru proxies on the slaves so
that any write requests to the slaves get passed on to the master. If
the master fails, you can make one of the slaves the new master -- I
think this is a manual process but perhaps it could be automated.

I can't speak to SVK.
