The subversion FAQ recommends it as the equivalent of the CVS/SSH
access method. And HTTP(S) is not an option, unfortunately. Our
HTTP(S) proxy needs NTLM authentication and AFAIK this is mostly
unsupported by Unix tools. At least I never got it to work with SVN.

Oh, and HTTP wouldn't work anyway because of the HTTP extension
methods used by WebDAV, which is the protocol used when using the HTTP
access method, if I'm not mistaken.
