In that case I'm sure it wouldn't! I'm glad you worked out the 
compression thing. It would be possible to run svnserve. We could run 
svnserve -r on some directory, and make KForge write symlinks to the 
KForge subversion repositories and configure the repositories' 
svnserve.conf file (or suggest users do that via their project's DAV 
service). We could do all that in a little KForge plugin, it wouldn't 
take so long. I'll make a ticket...

Are mySociety using KForge? :-)
