ssh based access?

I've been lurking for quite some time, following subversion
development with interest. One issue that is big for the folks over in
NetBSD (my open source project poison of choice) is secure access to
the source repository. Currently, we do all our access to our CVS
repository via ssh, and people are very happy with ssh as a transport
mechanism. There is probably a lot of resistance to opening up other
holes on the main source repository.

I realize that extracting Apache and such from the process would be
very hard, but would it be difficult to make the standard tools able
to operate through port forwarded ssh connections the way that CVS
happily operates via CVS_RSH=ssh based connections?
