A better choise for a web interface for svn is http://websvn.tigris.org/

It uses the svn client to access stuff and doesnt need write access to the repository. Here at work we've been using SVN with websvn since january and we've only had to run recover on the repository once.

Also unlike cvs you can quite successfully run svn up from within the post-commit script itself with no problems, we keep our devel site up to date that way, whenever a commit made, it checks which repository dir was in then runs an svn update on the appropriate devel dir.
