Confixx _does_ support Apache2.  But the upgrade procedure from
apache-1.2 to apache-2.0 is not trivial on a server with half a dozen
resellers and ~30 domains, half of which have some custom
configuration in the apache configuration.

But setting up another server with apache2 on another ip address _is_
trivial and it has already happened.

This is no option. The reason is the same as for svnserve: Some of the
users sit in a universitory dorm's network with incompetent admins.
Any repository which is not accessible on port 80 or 443 will not work
for them.

I've set up the repository on a different server with apache2 and
libapache2-svn. Workes perfectly.
