CollabNet SVN installers

There seem to have been multiple changes over the past few releases to the
capability of the server install package from CollabNet, and I'm finding
them problematic.


I'm not going back and trying to reinstall all the previous 1.5 versions, so
I may be misremembering here, but my recollection here is that the server
install package used to be able to install the client programs without
having to install the actual server; if you cleared both option checkboxes,
you'd still get the client installed. That no longer is the case. If I want
a client-only install (typical for users) I now have to download both the
server and client installers.


Further, the client-only install doesn't include binaries like svnadmin. An
advanced user who may have need for svnadmin needs to install the server
(or, of course, just copy the binary over from a server's installation


The newer change I'm seeing with 1.5.5: we're using svnserve here. It used
to be that the option checkboxes allowed me to turn off the Apache option.
Right now, when I try to install 1.5.5, the Apache checkbox is checked but
disabled. I don't want Apache installed.


I would like to see the Server installer (1) install client anyway even if
the server is disabled and (2) stop forcing me into selections I don't want.


I would like to see the Client installer include an option for "advanced"
binaries, specifically svnadmin but I guess there are a few others as well.
