I'll keep that in mind for my next client, which will be Windows XP; the
others have all been Linux. I've already got apache running, so it's
not a big deal to use it.

The docs seem to imply that multiple tunneled svnserve's can run at
once; is that right? Is it safe to run them while also running the
Apache interface?

Is there a permission problem? The 1.5 manual says "This mode [svn+ssh]
assumes that a remote-service program such as rsh or ssh has
successfully authenticated a user and is now invoking a private svnserve
process as that user." That sounds as if the svn repository needs to be
writeable (assuming commits) by the user. Currently my system isn't
setup that way. I could enable acess, though that would also permit
file:// based access, which I gather is not a good idea when there are
multiple clients.
