I do not doubt that there are places where users can get a proper
Apache, but I guarantee if we provide binaries via tigris that
requires this, the lists will be flooded with users having weird
problems because they did not know.

Even though some people do not like it, this is why we bundle Apache
with the CollabNet binaries. We are ultimately concerned with helping
people easily setup and run a SVN server and having them get their own
Apache is just a recipe for problems.

Any reason that is critical to you? The installer does little more
than unpack to a location and add to PATH. You can add /S to command
line to run it silent as well as specify the location. I doubt the
small install UI is the problem though.
