I already have a working SVN server using HTTP, but I'd like to see
some other alternatives, especially those which could provide better
performance.  The problem right now is that some users are accessing
the SVN within a VPN tunnel and things are slow for them.  So, if it's
possible to reduce data quantity, like using another protocol, I would
take it.
