I know that, and I guess what's subversion-base today is more than enough
to run SVN. But not knowing that, pkg_add'ing just "subversion" installs
apache2 and whatnot, which is _ways_ over the top.

Preventing users from installing stuff they don't need is the idea here.
If you have a good idea (and want to do the work :), that'd be fine.
