I'm fine with this for now.  Since svnserve (and git-daemon)
both support inetd behavior, I think we can eventually have a
test helper which binds random ports and pretends to be an
inetd, letting the test run without any special setup.

It would let multiple test instances run in parallel, even.

Fine by me.
