Do you know how to get this to work for a proxy requiring NTLM
authentication? This isn't supported by SVN, or is it?

I'm thinking about using a local proxy doing the authentication stuff
like so:

SVN <------> Local Proxy <------> Company Proxy <------> SVN Server

But I have no idea if this will actually work, and I will still need
to use HTTPS because of the WebDAV protocol used by SVN.

And besides, I would need to replace the public SSH key used for CVS
access by a password (for NTLM) stored in plain text in a
configuration file which is rather bad.
