Wouldn't https:// be easiest?

You might want to look at subversion edge which I think sets all this up for you and gives you a web UI to set up users as well.

I don't think you need to give each user a system account. Wouldn't they all use the same account and you manage logins with keys?

I'm not sure what that means? There needs to be a server apache or svnserve that access the repo. I'm not sure I see the difference if there is a security concern it is an issue with ACLs not what service is given the permissions.
