From /etc/sysconfig/svnserve

SVNSERVE_OPTIONS="-d -R -r /srv/svn/repos"
SVNSERVE_USERID="svn"
SVNSERVE_GROUPID="svn"

From /usr/lib/systemd/system/svnserve.service, the svn user/group is hardcoded.

[Service]
Type=forking
EnvironmentFile=/etc/sysconfig/svnserve
User=svn
Group=svn
PIDFile=/var/run/svnserve/svnserve.pid
ExecStart=/usr/bin/svnserve --daemon --pid-file=/var/run/svnserve/svnserve.pid
$SVNSERVE_OPTIONS

User would like to read the svnserve user and group from
/etc/sysconfig/svnserve, and have it passed to system for running the daemon.

User=$SVNSERVE_USERID
Group=$SVNSERVE_GROUPID

However values from EnvironmentFile cannot be used for this expansion. So the
/etc/sysconfig/svnserve has some leftover from the pre-systemd times, or that
specifying user/group to something other than svn does not work.
