Sorry, you're right. I misunderstood you. File a bugzilla then and
have the developers figure it out.

Just add a script in /etc/init.d, traditionally called local (but can
be called anything you like) and then add it the startup process with
update-rc.d (try man update-rc.d).  That's what I did back in Warty
when I couldn't get the system to automatically mount a second (SATA)
hard drive in the system.

In your case, the simplest script would just contain svnserve -d -r
