That mode of operation is in the FAQ already:

        http://subversion.tigris.org/project_faq.html#paranoid

but it would be nicer if the svn client could initiate its own tunnel
(so that you won't have backgrounded tunnels floating about). Actually,
I am using something similar, as script called 'svn':

ssh -f -L 3690:127.0.0.1:3690 servername sleep 120 2>/dev/null
/usr/local/bin/svn "$@"

which means the tunnels expire after 120 seconds.
