According to [1], currently svn.webkit.org runs severely outdated Subversion 1.6.11. Since then, there were 3 significant releases of Subversion, which brought lots of performance improvements, most importantly brand new HTTP protocol [3] and storage format improvements [4]. Also, since 1.7 Apache 2.4 with MPM event is supported, which may increase server throughput.

BTW, to improve performance of up to date Subversion client (>= 1.8), it is needed to adjust Apache configuration[5]: increase MaxKeepAliveRequests from default 100 to at least 1000. This needs to be done regardless of Subversion server upgrade.
