Builtin SSH tunneling support

From: Casper Hornstrup <chorns_at_users.sourceforge.net>

In your FAQ you explain how to access a repository using SSH
port-forwarding.

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

% ssh -L 8888:svn-server.example.com:80 me@ssh-server.example.com
% svn checkout http://localhost:8888/repos/ours

I tried this with svnserve running as a service instead and it
worked. It is however too complicated as you need two shells. One
shell for creating the tunnel and one for running the Subversion
command.

I would like know if you would accept a patch that would enable
Subversion to have builtin capability to create and use such a
tunnel.

P.S. I know there exist svn+ssh also but I don't like that users
are spawning private svnserve processes on the server. Nor do I like
giving all users full access to the repository files on the server.
