I think the answer to your question is:

  * Right now you can do it with some awful tunnel hacks, but you'll
still have to run apache for the last hop. (You can tunnel ra_dav, but
you can't tunnel ra_local, since ra_local is not a stream protocol.)
It's possible that Subversion could make this a little more transparent,
but it's never going to be ideal.

  * What you really want is a new ra module which operates over a stream
connection, supports tunneling over an rsh-like agent, and doesn't
require Apache. I would like to see this too, but it's a significant
amount of work, and no one has stepped up to the plate for it yet. I
don't believe the project would reject the work if it were done, though
(particularly if a qualified developer were around to support it).
