Installing Subversion on Heart Internet Shared Server

I spent a good day of my life trying to install subversion on my one of our accounts that is hosted with Heart Internet.

Just to find out that it is not possible

"It is not possible to install or run subversion on our servers as doing so would put you in breach of our terms and conditions.

15.1.2 you do not use the Hosting Service as a backup of, or repository for, your Material;"

This is unfortunate as they're are many reasons why having a version control program is paramount to solid base for web development. If you are installing on shared host though and it's not with Heart Internet then this post

explains the process much clearer than anything else that I came across.

Have you tried compiling svn on Heart Internet? Doesn't work? Maybe perl version of svn?
