Understood, but at the time I brought SVN into the company, the extent
of the company's Linux experience was being able to spell "Linux" and
I wasn't interested in becoming the lone server admin for it.
Performance has been acceptable for us. Today, we have some more Linux
experience in-house, but we already have a VM allocated to the "new"
Win2K3 server (I started putting new repositories on it a year ago, I
just have my original repository which needs to be migrated to it) and
I just don't have the time to pull an OS switch on top of the upgrade
and repository migration.

If I need to upgrade to Apache 2.2 to get up to APR 1.2, I'll do that
upgrade along with my SVN 1.5 upgrade.
