I meant the Apache server.

You don't need it to perform step 2, but you would need it if you went
this route.

It's also much easier than you probably realize. You don't need to
create tags, etc, you only need to change the URL from svn:// to http://
(assuming the rest of the URL is the same). It would be not all that
difficult to write something to walk the repository and update the
svn:externals properties, pegged revisions and all.

Except for the part where it works with Windows *now*, without any
difficulty. Suit yourself; I think you may have some misconceptions
about Apache with regards to Subversion. There is no reason to consider
Subversion over Apache as anything other than a different way to access
the repo (i.e. it isn't a full featured web server, but merely a service
that happens to use http as the transport method)...
