      Description

      When svnserv is located in a non-standard place and users are not using OpenSSH,
      it's important for us to be able to specify the path to svnserv so that we don't
      have to use ssh keys.  ssh keys work fine in openssh environments, but not so in
      Windows without Cygwin and/or OpenSSH.
      
      So, instead of having to set 
      
      SVNROOT and SVN_SSH, we could:
      
      svn co --path-to-svnserv=/x/apps/bin/svnserv svn+ssh://hostname/path/to/files
      
      Even if I were using OpenSSH, when the remote site has multiple versions of svn
      actively in use, not being able to specify the path to svnserv makes it more
      difficult to interract with the remote site.
