The svnbook section you refer to above isn't *wrong*, but it certainly could
be misleading in terms of what is and isn't supported.  (Which is why I
wrote the "workaround" blog post to which you were pointed by my peer here.)
 For a better chance at getting a direct response with information you can
immediately apply, I would suggest consulting another PHP-centric community
for how they do this.  (The Drupal community comes to mind.)
