It doesn't support splitting the index into pages apparently.

I was looking for more solutions last night - there was one that even 
used caching for efficiency, but it had some other drawback. I found 
more, but discarded many of them for minor reasons.

The best ones so far are:

bsSvnBrowser: https://bssvnbrowser.bountysource.com/
Demo: https://bssvnbrowser.bountysource.com/svn/!tree/30

However, it uses Ruby on Rails and the installation instructions are not 
too good - so if you don't know rails already, you probably have no chance.

svn::web: http://search.cpan.org/~nikc/SVN-Web/
Demo: http://jc.ngo.org.uk/svnweb/

Looks a lot like trac, but doesn't appear to support highlighting for 
file view. Arch lacks a few perl packages for this one though, but it 
should be easier to set up than bsSvnBrowser.
