No, it can't be less, Subversion's client library occasionally needs
to make multiple connections to the server to accomplish various
things. Over ssh that means you make multiple ssh connections.

One potential option that might work for you is ssh connection
caching, which solves this problem at the ssh level instead of at the
subversion level, it'll still make multiple connections sometime, but
it will keep them around so it won't need to recreate them as often.
