OK.  The way I read Ben's email is that the reason you do not see this
in "plain Apache" was that it is usually run in pre-fork.  I thought
it was possible in SVN regardless.  It sounds like when SVN is used in
an Apache that is using pre-fork these processes are being cleaned up
regularly which frees memory.
