Actually, it was BekeleyDB. :)

And Jens has fixed that now, iirc?

The main obstical was that it required apache 2 and, at the time
we were running apache 1 and I didn't want to spend the time
figuring out the apache access.

Is cvs.zope.org still running Apache 1?

I would support HTTP anonymous checkouts.  I'm really against
writable HTTP checkouts because I consider the credentials
mechanism for HTTP access to be extremely lame.

Can you elaborate a little? I'm guessing you may mean that the subversion client has a propensity for storing cleartext passwords but is there anything else?

lame program for uploading keys, I find the ssh-based access
mechanism to be far more usable and secure.

Secure, maybe, but is it really worth it?

Usable? Don't agree, especially if you're trying to develop on Windows...

cheers,

Chris
