To do it right, you'd have to write an ftp backup for SVN.

Or, you could use a user space FTP client that mounts an ftp area as a
normal disk. These probably exist for win/lin/mac, but I would not
bet on their reliability to host an svn repo.

I would NOT recommend this access method. This would be similar (but
probably worse) to having the repo live on an NFS share.
